Brown Bag: Speak with Your Tongues on Fire: Language and Power in Latin American Feminisms

Too often, global feminisms are seen through an imperial lens, which contributes to the misguided thinking that feminism is a Western invention. This presentation looks at some Latin American feminisms, specifically the Latinidades in Brazil and Marta Lamas in Mexico. Many of these feminisms directly engage with global capitalism, and this paper analyzes the rhetoric used that gives voice to those often silenced in making world policy.
