Communism in Motion: How Hunter Gatherers Make Egalitarianism Work

Speaker(s)
Description

Drawing on her fieldwork with the Bayaka forest hunter-gatherers of the Congo Basin, Morna explains how women take the initiative in regular riotous yet playful rituals to make sure that men behave. She calls this 'communism in motion' because gender egalitarianism is never a fixed or settled state but has to be constantly nurtured and established anew. Morna's feminist message is politically uncompromising. One not to be missed!
