Feminist Fightback Reading Group: Greater than the sum of our parts: feminism, inter/nationalism & Palestine

Short url: 


Join Feminist Fightback and friends for the second book in our short look  at the Palestinian struggle. After January's fiction respite we will spend February and March discussing the "Greater than the sum of our parts: feminism, inter/nationalism & Palestine"

In this bold book, Palestinian activist Nada Elia unpacks Zionism, from its hypermilitarism to incarceration, its environmental devastation and gendered violence. She insists that Palestine's fate is linked through bonds of solidarity to other communities crossing racial and gender lines, weaving an intersectional feminist understanding of Israeli apartheid throughout her analysis.

We will discuss this book in two sessions:

  • Monday 26th of February:
    • Introduction- Feminist, Abolitionist, and Indigenous Horizons
      in the Struggle Against Settler Colonialism and Apartheid (15p)
    • Chapter 1 - Settler Colonialism and Indigenous Resistance from
      Palestine to Turtle Island (26p) and
    • Chapter 2 - Déjà Vu: Beyond Apartheid (28p)
    • Chapter 3 - Social and Political Liberation: No Free Homeland Without
      Free Women and Queers (27p),
  • Monday 25th of March:
    • Chapter 4 - On This Land: Land and Cultural Reclamation from Turtle
      Island to Palestine (25p) and
    • Chapter 5 - A Global Intifada (23p)
    • Epilogue: Greater Than the Sum of Our Parts (4p)
    • Appendix: Pledge—Palestine is a Feminist Issue (2p)

Please come having read the text. Drop us a line if you would like more details and to let us know if you will be joining, so we have an idea of numbers at feminist.fightback@gmail.com.
