Contra el derecho: feminismo y la nueva Constitución en Chile

Gastvortrag von Alia Trabucco Zerán (Autorin, Chile) - ONLINE: Dienstag, 8. Juni, 18 Uhr
In this guest lecture, Alia Trabucco Zerán reads her essay Contra el derecho and discusses the role of feminism in the current movement of social protest and transformation in Chile.
In october 2020, Chileans voted by a vast majority in favor of a popularly elected citizen assembly with gender parity and will thus be the first country in the world with a constitution written by a body made up of equivalent men and women. This important achievement is considered a game changing moment in Chile's history and a milestone for the feminist tide that has been rising in Latin America in the last years. Being a driving force in the broader fight for dignity and equality, the feminist movement has been drawn into the heart of the constitutional process and will have the opportunity to establish gender equality as a fundamental principle of the country. This political process brings unprecedented possibilities and challenges, which we discussed in this conversation with Alia Trabucco Zerán.
