Happy Women's History Month and International Women's Day! In honor of all Caribbean bad gyals at home and in the diaspora, Sarah-anne Gresham joins us for a discussion on Caribbean Feminisms and the ways Caribbean women have challenged oppressions and campaigned for their rights and the rights of others.

Sarah-Anne Gresham is the co-founder of Intersect Antigua which is a Queeribbean feminist collective of stories, art, and teach-ins on gender justice. Sarah was a recipient of a Fulbright scholarship in 2018 and received a Master of Arts degree in Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies from George Washington University in the spring of 2020. She graduated as a Columbian College of Arts and Sciences “Graduate  Distinguished Scholar” in recognition of her work as a graduate research specialist and communications assistant, as well as her master’s thesis on feminist historiography and literary theory. She is now a third-year doctoral student and teaching assistant at Rutgers University with research interests in Black/Caribbean feminist thought, affect theory, comparative racialization, and Japanese anime. Her work as a teaching assistant to undergraduate students is rooted in understanding and critiquing limited liberal feminist paradigms of “equality” with men. Rather than seeking inclusion, equality, or reforms within systems and categories that perpetuate harm, she agitates for abolition and transformative justice and for dismantling, in the words of bell hooks, “white supremacist capitalist patriarchy.” Follow Sarah on Instagram and follow Intersect Antigua on Instagram and Twitter

*Minor Correction: The Sixteen Days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence are November 25 (International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women)
