Join supporters of Red Guards — Los Angeles as we continue a series on unlearning or deconstructing patriarchy based out of the Ovarian Psycos headquarters, the autonomous anarcha womxn-of-color-led La Conxa.
Part 3 of this series will take a more intentional focus on micro-aggressions of how patriarchy manifests in our daily lives. One of the more immediate goals is for men to leave the event with a better understanding and framework to combat patriarchy. Topics that we will talk about include: gaslighting, emotional labor, and interpersonal communication.
The series is geared toward men, as they are often the principle agents of patriarchal reproduction, but all genders are welcomed.
Men, especially activist and revolutionary men, have an obligation to unlearn patriarchal behavior and tendencies. Activist spaces are not exempt to patriarchal violence.
While no prior understanding of terminology or texts is required, we encourage attendees to read the «Men in the Feminist Struggle» zine featuring articles by bell hooks, Andrea Dworkin and John Stoltenberg. (PDF download here: azinelibrary.org/zines/Men-in-the-Feminist-Struggle
