The Method 6/6 : Living in a utopia
Maybe we are missing a common imaginary, an ideal future that together, we could strive for. To change society, we need utopias. To make our ideal feminist society become finally real, we first need to imagine it.
In this episode, Rafia Zakaria, a Pakistani-American feminist lawyer and intellectual, tells us about India's first magazine created by and for women, and a short-story: Sultana's Dream. She explains how utopias allow us to imagine another story, another perspective. For Réjane Sénac, a French political scientist, utopia is the only realism. Citizen initiatives, demonstrations, civil disobedience are already utopias in action, "fertile and happy disobedience".
