[close] The Gender at Work Book Club's bi-monthly podcast series, “Feminists Rethinking Transformation”, features diverse voices from the Gender at Work’s international network of feminist scholars, activists, and community-led development practitioners. In our informal conversations, we discuss books, articles, films, and other media that help us to find new ways of understanding our work, our institutions, our society and ambitiously, ourselves! By coming together in this new space, we seek to re-examine the resilience of patriarchy and assess the willingness and resistance of organizations and communities to create cultures of equality. "Feminists Rethinking Transformation" amplifies voices crucial in this transformative process of cultivating promising alternatives for a feminist future.
