Oppressed to organized: The informal learning of racialized female youth within community organizing spaces

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

How do certain ‘non-hierarchical’ community organizing spaces exclude young racialized women through the structuring of policy and social practice? Why do young racialized women choose to participate in community organizing in spite of facing structural and institutional oppression on a daily and personal basis?

In recognizing the exclusive and privileged knowledge of certain spaces, such as women’s shelters and campus student movements, in the Canadian context, I will track why certain young racialized women choose to engage in social organizing and activism while other racialized women choose not to. This presentation will use social movement and critical race theories in order to look at the incidental learning or knowledge production inherent in one’s experience of oppression and community organizing. Situated in the concepts of intersecting oppressions and the fluidity of privilege, I will further illustrate the privilege and exclusivity of activist spaces as well as the knowledge production within young racialized women’s personal, collective and organized experiences with oppression. How can academic research be informed by knowledge developed within social movements, and in turn be made relevant and accessible to those movements? These complexities will be explored and analyzed through the discussion of extensive non-structured interviews and hermeneutics done with young racialized women who are community organizers and with other young racialized women who opt out of community organizing.
