Intimacy and injury: In the wake of #MeToo in India and South Africa

Season 4, Ep. 10

In this episode of Between the Lines, Priya Raghavan, Post-Doctoral Researcher in the IDS Governance Cluster, interviews Nicky Falkof, Associate Professor of Media Studies at the University of the Witwatersrand. Priya is part of the IDS project Sustaining Power for Women’s Rights, which works with women’s movements in South Asia to study and help develop strategies against backlash.

Nicky is co-editor of the book: Intimacy and injury: In the wake of #MeToo in India and South Africa.

Through the lens of the #MeToo moment, this book and podcast tracks histories of feminist’s organising in both countries, while also revealing how newer strategies extended or limited these struggles. Intimacy and injury is a timely mapping of a shifting political field around gender-based violence in the global south.

This book and podcast is essential reading and listening for all studying and researching gender issues, especially in relation to questions of gendered violence.
