Feminism, generation and intersectionality
Alison Winch pages -


Alison Winch considers the ways neoliberal policies encourage generational mistrust by deploying blame for ‘austerity’ on the so-called baby boomer generation and argues that these divisions have an important gendered dimension. She examines forms of feminist conflict that can result from precarity in the domain of work and the attendant fight for resources. In addition, the article explores neoliberal feminisms that celebrate individualism and personal responsibility and examines the way these issues are taken up by the mainstream media in order to obscure and silence anti-capitalist feminist collectives and their histories. Recognising the radical potential of digital culture, the writer argues for the importance of forging alliances across online and offline networks in order to address the problems of funding and political sustainability outside (and against) the control of corporate patriarchal hegemony.
