Nobody's Free Until Everybody's Free! 2021/22 Feminist Political Philosophy Speaker Series

The Philosophisches Seminar at University of Hamburg presents a speaker series on feminist philosophical approaches to urgent contemporary political questions. The series takes its title from the words of US civil rights activist Fannie Lou Hamer—words that demand accountability from any society calling itself a liberal democracy. To take those words seriously, a society must not only stamp out prejudice and discrimination, but must rethink basic institutions of education, policing, criminal justice, and national borders, as well as social and cultural norms of family and community life. This speaker series brings together feminist political philosophers who respond to this challenge and map paths to a freer and more livable society.
