We are looking for historians of feminism to discuss the 50th anniversary of Sisterhood is Powerful tentatively titled: “Sisterhood is Powerful to Stronger Together: A Discussion on the 50th Anniversary of the Women’s Liberation Movement Anthology.” We want to explore the legacy of this book, particularly within the context of contemporary feminist imagery and ideology that emphasizes diverse women working together. Specifically, what impact did Sisterhood is Powerful have on feminist ideology? Intersectional feminism, in particular. How is the book remembered? How can going back to this classic text help us understand and study contemporary feminism? And the obvious question: what role does capitalism, consumerism, and media play in (mis)representing ideas associated with Sisterhood is Powerful? Please email Kate Flach at kflach@ucsd.edu by March 9 if you are intersted.
