A panel discussion exploring current debates in reproductive justice and bodily autonomy. 

Who benefits from advances in technology? When it comes to reproductive labour in society, such as caregiving and domestic work, technological ‘progress’ is often unevenly distributed along lines of class, race and geography. How might a feminist politics of care revisit the question of how technology can liberate all people – sexually, socially, economically and politically? What new technologically-assisted configurations of relationships and kinship can we envision to help achieve this? 

Alongside chair Reni Eddo-Lodge, Merve Emre, Sophie Lewis and Nat Raha explore the impact of technology on contemporary understandings of ‘belonging’ and identity. They will navigate the many global struggles for bodily autonomy including reproductive justice, sex work decriminalisation, trans and migrants rights.

Duration: 75 mins
