Event description

Description

Through interviews with the Feminist Five and other leading Chinese activists, journalist and scholar Leta Hong Fincher argues in "Betraying Big Brother" that the popular, broad-based movement poses a unique challenge to China’s authoritarian regime today. Her book traces the rise of a new feminist consciousness now finding expression through the #MeToo movement, and describes how the Chinese government has suppressed the history of its own feminist struggles and how the movement against patriarchy could reconfigure China and the world.

Fincher's presentation will be followed by a discussion with Dayo Gore, associate professor in Ethnic Studies and Critical Gender Studies at UC San Diego.

A reception will be held after the event.

The event is co-sponsored by Global Forum at i-House.

Location: International House, The Great Hall (directions). Closest parking will be at the Pangea Parking Structure (Pangea Drive at N. Torrey Pines Rd.) A parking permit is required and can be purchased at the pay stations.
