Round talk // Name the depoliticalization of Cyber feminisms!
Although there is lately a trend around feminist art, and 2 major art magazines had dedicated their intire issues on feminist art (Frieze and Artnews), right now women are losing rights.

Coming to the point that the difference between women’s movement and feminism – is not about gaining a position but about constructing different structures.

And defending that there is nothing wrong with the term feminism, and we're not looking for a new word. If someone feels close to the feminist agenda, but does not engage itself because feminism has such a strong connotation, then they are not quite yet ready.
