This talk will weave how aspects of race, gender, and spirituality inform Mizrahi Feminism. Through personal experience and political discourse, this session will highlight the ways Ashkenormativity has taken over the Jewish world and erased the experiences and stories of Mizrahi and Sephardi Jews. It will be rooted in a framework of intersectional feminism that seeks to dismantle systems of oppression. This session is open to people of all backgrounds.
