Movements against social injustices have historically evoked the idea of solidarity. In the context of traditional liberal feminism, solidarity was primarily constructed through an appeal to common oppression. Intra-group differences were downplayed, resulting in a unidimensional and colonizing understanding of the concept. This talk will outline the conceptual dimensions of solidarity within the traditional liberal framework and address critiques from various perspectives such as difference feminisms in the West, postcolonial feminisms, and Third World feminisms. Banerjee will trace a new theoretical pathway for the concept of solidarity that makes it possible to accommodate differences.
