Françoise Vergès

Dekolonialer Feminismus in Zeiten der Pandemie. Race, Gender, Umwelt, Kapitalismus


In her book «Decolonial Feminism», the political scientist and activist Françoise Vergès discusses how structural violence manifests itself in exploitative domestic work, waste production and ideologies of cleanliness. The colonial separation of «clean» and «unclean» bodies has fostered the emergence of racist capitalism and continues to shape regimes of injustice. During the pandemic, it is especially the invisible, cheap workforce which is exposed to the virus, while a clean environment is far from being available to everyone. Strategies of «cleaning» and «greening» alone will not change this. (mr)
