This lecture with historian Imaobong Umoren explores the varied social and political movements working- and middle-class women have been active within.

Taking a comparative perspective and looking at Europe, the US, and the Caribbean, this lecture will highlight the diverse range of ways women have played key roles in movements to challenge oppression and promote equality.
