Join Jo Littler, author of The Care Manifesto for a public lecture.
In her 2018 book Against Meritocracy Jo Littler considered how myths of social mobility are used. In her most recent book, Left Feminisms, she interviewed a range of thinkers about feminist theory.
In this talk at the South London Gallery, she brings both themes together, to ask: What is the relationship between feminism, social mobility and ‘meritocracy’? How is feminist ‘success’ imagined from different political perspectives?
