"If you are disgusted by what you see and feel the fire coursing through your veins, then it's up to you. You don't have to be the leader of a global movement or a household name. It can be as small scale as chipping away at the warped power relations in your workplace. It can be passing on knowledge and skills to those who couldn't access them otherwise. It can be creative. It can be informal. It can be your job. It doesn't matter what it is, as long as you're doing something."
Reni Eddo-Lodge, in her book Why I'm No Longer Talking to White People about Race

On 24 November the Institute hosted journalist, author and podcaster Reni Eddo-Lodge for a discussion on her writings and, more broadly, the issues surrounding anti-racist struggles within feminism. Watch the event here:

Imagine that you are pregnant. You are in your ninth month. You feel an intense pain. You faint. When you wake up you are at the hospital, surrounded by police officers. They accuse you of having killed your own baby. This is the story of Teodora Vásquez, the spokesperson of the "17 y más" accused of aggravated homicide because of having an obstetric emergency in El Salvador.

Hair-cutting, hijab burning, mourning the loss of a friend, sister, daughter and woman: these are the images of worldwide protests sparked after 22-year old Mahsa Amini was detained for wearing an “improper” hijab in Tehran, and fell into a coma and died.
Yet in many of the western countries where the rights of women are simultaneously being decried in Iran, Muslim women are accosted daily for their beliefs and how they dress, finding themselves as the subjects of extreme forms of racism and hate.
To unfurl the reasons behind this di-chotomy, Professor Julie Billaud, who teaches Anthropology and Sociology at the Institute, joins us for this episode of What Matters Today:
To Wear or Not to Wear? More than Just the in Question

Conférence publique en études genre, Uni Mail, 14 novembre 18h15, avec Gwénaëlle Mainsant, Sociologue et politiste, Chercheuse au CNRS à l'Institut de recherches interdisciplinaires en Sciences sociales (IRISSO, Université Paris Dauphine-PSL)

En droit français, nulle définition de la prostitution. Que ce soit dans une rue du XVIIIe arrondissement de Paris, sur Internet ou dans un salon de massage, le-la policier-e chargé-e de réprimer les infractions connexes à la prostitution (telles le proxénétisme ou le racolage) se retrouve dans la situation de définir ce qu’elle est. Cette définition n’est pas aussi évidente qu’on pourrait le croire. Couramment, c’est l’échange de services s*xuels contre rémunération qui définit la prostitution et cet échange, comme l’ont montré les féministes matérialistes comme Paola Tabet ou Gail Pheterson, se fait majoritairement dans un sens: celui d’un échange de s*xualité féminine contre une rémunération masculine. Mais alors, si l’on adopte cette définition, comment désigner une jeune femme qui se fait offrir des cadeaux en échange de rapports s*xuels dans un hôtel de luxe ou des masseuses chinoises pratiquant des massages sur tout le corps, y compris le s*xe du client ? C’est moins une évidence qu’un continuum de situations entre prostitution et non prostitution parmi lesquelles les policier-es opèrent un tri, distinguant s*xualité légale et illégale. Agents de l’État et dépositaires d’un pouvoir juridique, les policier·es sont aussi en cela des agents de l’ordre social et s*xuel. S’immergeant plusieurs mois dans les brigades de police, ouvrant les dossiers et les archives de la « Mondaine », Gwénaëlle Mainsant a cherché à saisir cet ordre s*xuel en train de se faire, à travers le travail policier. Cela implique de revenir sur qui sont ces policier-es, sur le rôle hérité de l’histoire qu’ils investissent face aux prostitué-es et sur les routines qui sous-tendent leurs enquêtes. L’enquête montre alors combien la police du s*xe est une police du genre. Ce faisant, la sociologue invite à penser conjointement les formes genrées du contrôle social sur la s*xualité et la place du travail émotionnel dans le cas d’une profession de contrôle et donc plus généralement la part émotionnelle de la domination.
