Sophie Lewis & Lola Olufemi: Abolish the FamilyTuesday 4 October 2022, 7 p.m. · 64 minutes
In Abolish The Family, leading feminist critic Sophie Lewis asks us to imagine a world without families. She traces the history of family abolitionism, before introducing us to the groundbreaking politics of radical feminists and gay liberationists that have called for a society organised without the family at its core. Ultimately, she insists: only by thinking beyond the family can we begin to imagine what might come after.
Lewis was in conversation with Lola Olufemi, author of Experiments In Imagining Otherwise (Hajar Press).
