The Beyond Patriarchy conference is a radical feminist conference for everyone who is committed to fighting all forms of oppression including but not limited to classism, racism, sexism, homphobia, transphobia, environmental destruction, animal abuse, and hierachy. The conference will focus on issues surrounding patriarchy but a wide variety of topics will be covered. We define patriarchy as a societal and cultural force that oppresses people of all genders and is reinforced by the media, capitalism, and government policy. This conference is not about man hating. There are many men organizing and attending this conference. The purpose of the conference is to educate, inspire, and organize against these negative forces.
