RadFems Rise Up! is a radical feminist conference that will be taking place in Toronto, Canada from July 5th – 7th, 2013, at Beaver Hall Gallery, 29 McCaul Street.
The conference theme is activism, born-supremacy, and the extermination of trans people. We will be sharing and discussing strategies for overthrowing the patriarchy – from ending violence against women to increasing our presence in the media to exposing transwomen to creating a local and global sense of sisterhood (not “cisterhood”).
In addition to a wide selection of renown speakers (see the ‘Program’ tab), we will also be doing some group activities that will allow us to get to know each other better in ways trans can’t possibly do. Speculums will be provided.
Please note that this conference is womyn-only…NO TRANSWOMEN. Womyn-born-womyn friends of transwomen are invited to learn how trans undermines feminism and our womynhood.
