Below is the audio link to my interview with Ella Rossman, a feminist from Russia, a member of the coordinating group of Feminist Anti-War Resistance and a doctoral student at the University College London, who writes about gender and Soviet history. She talks about the feminist anti-war solidarity with the resistance of Ukrainian people against Putin’s invasion, and the needed global solidarity to oppose misogyny, racism, capitalist authoritarianism.
Below is the audio link to my interview with Oksana Dutchak, a Ukrainian sociologist and co-editor of Commons, a journal published inside Ukraine. She talks about the courageous popular resistance to Putin’s brutal invasion, as well as the needed solidarity with regional and global struggles against authoritarianism, racism and misogyny.
We cannot let the Syria scenario continue in Ukraine. Given the direct connection which Putin himself has drawn between his invasion of Ukraine and his support of rape and misogyny, it is incumbent upon global feminist activists who are opposed to gender violence to stand up and speak out against this invasion.
