'HYSTERIA - a collection of feminisms' with guest Minna Salami aka MsAfropolitan, Gabriella Daris an

Launch event for second issue of Hysteria, a feminist periodical founded by the SOAS Feminist Society. This issue considers ‘Roles & Rules’. With guest speakers and live music performance.

HYSTERIA is a non-profit radical feminist periodical and platform launching its second issue themed ”Roles & Rules”. At this launch speakers will include Minna Salami aka MsAfropolitan who will discuss African feminism and identity, Gabriella Daris on Un/concealment in Yoko Ono's Cut Piece: Rethinking Feminsit Approaches to Nudity, and finally Mushana (www.mushanamusic.tumblr.com) will perform at the end.

HYSTERIA was founded six months ago at SOAS and grew out of feminist discussions and concerns in the SOAS Feminist Society. HYSTERIA is a feminist periodical and a platform for activism, politics and solidarity. The periodical strives to expose power relations that have become naturalised and entrenched through illusions of equality. It believes that feminism is a universal concern and not reserved for a selected few. It should be spread across discussions between all walks of life.

Therefore, HYSTERIA harbours multiple streams of feminisms. This is a direct outcome of the webs of distinct and overlapping feminist narratives of struggles and oppression. It insists on the equality of all, through a continuous discussion on what equality entails, refusing to settle on a rigid definition. HYSTERIA starkly opposes ideologies, philosophies, and belief-systems that have generated the fantasy of feminism as a property, commodity or craze and believes that these ideas reproduce merginalisation, deprivation and inequity.
