Third Wave Feminisms – Chitra Ganesh

Artist Chitra Ganesh addresses the widely held belief that feminism was “a white middle-class women’s movement of the ’70s” and argues that the consequence of this notion has been the disidentification of younger women and women of color with feminism (and feminist art). She also advocates for more conversation among diverse disciplines–such as art, feminism, environmental studies, and sociology–to resist the tendency toward discursive insularity.

Chitra Ganesh spoke on the panel “Third Wave Feminisms” at Exquisite Acts & Everyday Rebellions: 2007 CalArts Feminist Art Symposium, a student-organized project that took place at CalArts on March 10, 2007.
