As part of Antiuniversity Festival (, we will be running a workshop on Misogyny, Patriarchy and Mental Experience:

Living in patriarchal societies shapes our external conditions, our relationships and the inner lives of all of us. For women and those who experience misogyny, we are told we are ‘mad’ when we express the realities of gender oppression; at the same time we are forced to survive a world that is crazy-making. This affects everything from how our access mental health services is obstructed and controlled, to the construction of a biomedical model of madness and indeed, how gender informs what it is to be ‘sane’, ‘functional’ and ‘productive’. This workshop will aim to explore mental distress is gendered; how misogyny and patriarchy polices our emotional lives; the coercion to perform happiness; and feminist perspectives on mental health resistance. It is open to people of all genders.

Mental Health Under Capitalism is a collective of Anti-capitalists who are interested in the impact of how Capitalism effects our mental health, creating communities of care and support for one another.

We are a group who aim to promote a community of care among activists and those who are often marginalised and oppressed by society. We are committed to maintaining a confidential and safe space. Please note that the venue is wheelchair accessible, however the toilet is not.
