Reimagining a feminist and anti-racist social contract
May 12, 2022 at 1:00pm - 4pm
Christian Aid and Women’s International Peace Centre, (WIPC) Uganda would like to invite you to an online convening of feminist thinkers, practitioners, and activists on 12th May at 12 PM UK time/4.30 PM New Delhi/2 PM Nairobi. At the convening we want to explore what a genuinely transformative new planetary feminist and anti-racist Social Contract would contain; How we build a positive relationship between not only the citizen and the state, but also the relationship between communities, the individual, the planet, and the accountability of big business to deliver a sustainable future for all and finally what we owe each other to build mutual accountability between peoples, states, businesses, and nature.
The format will be a keynote speech by renowned feminist and author Gita Sen, one of the editors of ‘The Remaking of Social Contracts: Feminists in a Fierce New World’. This will be followed by a ‘Ted Talk’ style conversation-starters on four different elements of a feminist anti-racist social contract and the second part of the meeting will be further unpacked by moderated conversations with partners and allies.
There will ‘Ted Talk’ style conversation-starters on four different elements of a feminist anti-racist social contract which will be further unpacked by moderated conversations with partners:

Helen Kezie Nwoha - How is a feminist anti-racist social contract defined in a fragile context? What agency do the marginalized and vulnerable have to engage with the state in relation to a social contract? How does this play out within and among this group?
