About the Talk

Grabbing Back is an online collective of intersectional feminists. Their work primarily involves creating resources which aim at making feminist theory accessible and easy to understand. In this presentation, they will discuss their work, the motivations and theory behind the project, and their future plans. They then will present some of the content from their latest season, focussing on the topic, “The Roots of Intersectionality”.
