The final episode of this module takes on a global perspective, using as a point of departure de-colonial theorists Chandra Talpade Mohanty, Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak, Maria Lugones, and others. The key malady, the main disorder, on a global scale, is extreme inequality, its diagnosis is capitalism in its current neoliberal format. International „…institutions … that should act to reduce inequality, do not have real power to act properly“, moreover, „they are themselves part of the problem, and not the solution.“ However, the episode offers gender analyses through concrete examples and, while looking at the future, points toward a women’s resolve not to give up.

The episode is read by the author, Biljana Kašić.
