This is DVD Number 3 from the Z Sessions On Vision & Strategy held in Woods Hole, Massachusetts in June 2006.
In Part 1, Peters explores what values family arrangements have and don’t have. She looks specifically at sexist divisions of labor/parenting and at sexuality. Finally, she argues for caretaking as a possible category for inclusion in people’s “balanced life job complex.” In Part 2, Kolhatkar offers a detailed description of the origins of RAWA (Revolutionary Association of the Women of Afghanistan). She draws lessons from their organizing strategies, structure, and process. Each of these two sessions is approximately 40 minutes; an introduction is also included.
At the June 2006 Z Sessions On Vision & Strategy, 31 activists, writers, and teachers from the U.S., Canada, France, the UK, and South America gathered in Woods Hole, Massachusetts. Various participants presented papers on economics, gender, politics, race and ethnicity throughout the seven-day event. The goal was to explore ideas about long-term vision and to consider forming an international project for a participatory society.
Copies of the papers associated with these video presentations can be found at Z Sessions; information on the group IPPS, which formed from these sessions, is available at International Project for a Participatory Society.
