Covid-19, Feminist Academia and Social Justice Issues


3:00 pm – 5:00 pm 


18 Sep 2020


We are pleased to announce a joint event between the Feminist Studies Association (FSA) and the Centre for the Study of Women and Gender (CSWG) at the University of Warwick.

Date and Time: 18th September 2020, 3-5pm

Platform: Microsoft Teams

This online roundtable event aims to highlight and think through the existing gender inequalities which have been exacerbated by the Covid-19 pandemic and lockdown. It will focus on issues around domestic violence/violence against women and girls; disability and mental health; Black, Asian, migrant and refugee women in communities; and women in the Criminal Justice System. The event will also tie issues around feminist scholarship and campaign work to Covid-19 and its adverse impacts. We hope that, by addressing the struggles of those most vulnerable in this current moment, the event will foster crucial dialogue and collaboration between feminist scholars, activists, and organisations, in order to inform mobilisation and resistance on the ground.

Speakers include (further speakers to be confirmed):

• Shabana Kausar (Violence against women and girls tri-borough Strategic Lead)

• Gemma Williams (Doctoral Candidate, Birmingham City University)

• Dorothea Jones (The Monitoring Group)

The event is free to attend but spaces are limited. We also ask that attendees consider kindly donating £1, £3 or £5 or becoming a member of the FSA, as your generosity or membership helps to ensure that we can continue our work as a not for profit network in this increasingly difficult socio-economic climate.

The event will include the option to enable live captions and subtitles. If you have additional questions or requirements around accessibility, please get in touch on
