Thursday Workshop Roar For Matriarchy

Thursday, February 15, 2018 - 18:30

This year, RAG has tapped into a huge and growing interest in matriarchal societies. Did matriarchy ever exist? More importantly, can our beautiful planet be rescued from patriarchy and restored to some kind of gender-egalitarian rule? Tonight's meeting will be given over to planning for an International Women's Day event. Beyond that, we will be thinking of Donald Trump's scheduled visit in October, organizing to give him the Matriarchal welcome he deserves... Steve Bannon has issued a dire warning to US President Donald Trump: "The anti-patriarchy movement is going to dramatically alter the power structure across the world. I think it's going to unfold like the tea party, only bigger," the former White House chief strategist told Bloomberg News. "It's not Me Too. It's not just sexual harassment. It's an anti-patriarchy movement." He added: "Time's up on 10,000 years of recorded history. This is coming. Women are gonna take over. This is real." OK sisters, let's bring it on.

Martin Holbraad's main field research is in Cuba, where he focuses on Afro-Cuban religions and revolutionary politics. Having completed in 2002 his doctoral thesis on the role of oracles and money within the diviner cult of IfĂ  in socialist Cuba, his research since has focused on such topics as the relationship between myth and action, the consecration of objects, and, more broadly, the relationship between cosmology, politics and other forms of social invention.
