E115 The Surviving Society Alternative to Woman's Hour: Akwugo Emejulu

Surviving Society

...: Women of colour resist: In the first edition of the Surviving Society Alternative to Woman's Hour for 2021, Akwugo provides some important analysis on women of colour's activism and resistance in UK, Europe & beyond.*The first direct action of Sisters Uncut was not during the Suffragettes UK red carpet premiere in 2015 - at this point Sisters had already engaged in at least four national actions. Surviving Society unreservedly apologises for this error during the episode. We continue to be very much inspired by the work of activists like Sisters Uncut and our ambition is to show true recognition of this integral organising.

Leah Bassel and Akwugo Emejulu, “Minority Women and Austerity: Survival and Resistance in France and Britain” (Policy Press, 2017)

New Books in Gender

What is the impact of austerity on minority women? How has this impacted on already long standing forms of social inequality across England, France and Scotland? These questions are the subject of Minority Women and Austerity: Survival and Resistance in France and Britain (Policy Press, 2017), the new book from Dr. Leah Bassel, an associate professor of sociology at the University of Leicester, and Professor Akwugo Emejulu, a professor of sociology at the University of Warwick. The book foregrounds the narratives and understandings of minority women activists with regard to the current political moment. It challenges contemporary social policy analysis by using an intersectional approach to the impact of both state and third sector actions, as well as the political mobilizations associated with resistance. Drawing on a wealth of interview fieldwork, detailed policy analysis, and a deep but accessible theoretical framework, the book offers an important intervention on the failures of both right and left wing politics in response to the ongoing marginalization and poverty experienced by women of color. The book is an essential and important read for social policy, sociology, and politics scholars, as well as for anyone who seeks to understand the reality of the racialized and patriarchal contemporary state.
