WECF Workshop at Afrika Dag: #HerstoryofChange: The importance of the international women’s movement

#HerstoryofChange: The importance of the international women’s movement
Around the world, women are often the drivers of change. They are the first ones to stand up for the rights to their bodies. They invent smart, sustainable ways to combat climate change and improve food production. They fight for equality between men and women in society, even when things go wrong and conservative leaders such as Bolsonaro and Trump are in power. Since the first feminist wave, a lot has changed. There are new challenges, but also new opportunities. During this workshop we want to inspire each other by mapping the new feminist agenda, sharing success stories and discuss about how international solidarity can strengthen women in their work. We will do this with feminists from different continents and generations, such as Hedy D´Ancona (Dutch feminist from the start of the Dutch women´s movement in the 1960s and 1970s) and Mary (women´s and LGBT rights activist from Zimbabwe).
