Sexism and all the “isms”: A Recorded Seminar with Anuradha Deb


In this recorded seminar from July, 2020, Anuradha explores how through centuries, oppression has only changed its face and not its intensity. Why it is important to become aware of it, and put a process work  framework to what we sometimes don’t understand is happening to us. Seminar includes a lecture and an experiential exercise.


“As an Indian woman with many privileges, my experience of sexism is something that I have taught myself to live with on a daily basis.”

India and south east Asia are parts of the world where women have gone through extreme degrees of oppression for centuries. Mostly in such measures that internalizing the oppression was the only way to survive. Safety is of utmost importance and so I find the intersectionality of all levels of marginalization, whether it is racism or homophobia, it is all connected at the systemic level by the nature of oppression. To be safe is an issue of life and death as we know that sustained oppression kills.
