"Defining Oppression"

 

Discussion:

It is rather common to speak both of “oppressive governments” and of “oppressed groups”, but what is oppression exactly and how do we know if someone or some group is oppressed? Answering this question can help us get clearer about what we might be able to do about oppression. At Tuesday’s meeting we’ll discuss these questions, starting with two short readings, then adding our own ideas, criticisms, and examples to try to get a clearer understanding of just what oppression is. 

All are welcome and no background in Philosophy is needed in order to attend the meeting!
