“The patriarchal regime kills”
Date of Mouvement:
January 1, 2015 to December 31, 2015
Women’s participation in the Popular Movement (al-Hirak) in Lebanon, as well as the mobilisation movement that took place in 2015 to demand a solution for the garbage crisis that plagued Beirut, culminated in the forming of the Feminist Bloc, a collective of activists and feminists who have seen women’s demands absent from political mobilisations. The National Bloc raised the slogan “The patriarchal regime kills,” symbolising an intersectional feminist discourse that cuts across gender, race, and class.
