Nina Power

Nina Power (UK) is a philosopher, teacher, writer, and activist. Her critical thought spreads through a porous web of practices and experiences linked to philosophy, feminism, art, politics, film, new technologies and labour relations. In her 2009 essay “One-Dimensional Woman” she drew attention to the perverse way in which capitalism manipulates feminism. Against this, Power proposes collectively rethinking feminism in alliance with Marxism, and organising new social, labour, sexual, and emotional networks. For Power, writing is a form of activism, and her manifestos, newspaper articles, and essays are pockets of resistance to the hegemonic narratives of consumer societies.
