17 February 2021. 4pm (UK time). Sex-based rights v gender-as-identity: The challenge for contemporary feminism. Discussion organised by the new LEX network.
This facilitated discussion, with an introduction from Davina Cooper, will explore core dimensions of sex-based rights feminism and gender-as-identity. These two frameworks, currently locked into a divisive dispute, have come to dominate gender politics in the UK. What are their differences and common ground, why have they emerged in the recent period, what gender perspectives and politics have become marginalised as a result, and what might feminist aspirations for gender’s futures be?
