Women In Development Europe+

Read here our collected feminist perspectives on COVID-19.

WIDE+ is a European network of associations and activists that fights for women’s rights, as part of a larger struggle for social justice, sustainable livelihoods and human rights. Our feminism is not about promoting women whilst forgetting the bigger picture. There are deep unfair inequalities of power rooted in our societies: gender equality can only be achieved by working towards more caring, fair and sustainable economies that are fully democratically governed. To achieve this aim, we advocate changing European policies that affect people in and outside of Europe. WIDE+ aims to promote collective feminist movement building in Europe, in solidarity with our siblings elsewhere. Together we are strong. We welcome all sorts of feminists to join us.
