Abstract

This article will look at three case studies of performative political protest, where female activists are raising awareness of the precarious conditions of their lived experience in economic neoliberalism. The research is focused on links between Focus E15 Mothers Group in London, the #protestiram movement in Macedonia and #direnkahkaha (resist laughter) in Turkey. I will analyse these protest movements’ performative acts and argue that these acts are strategically used to draw attention to the inequality faced by women.
