Women In Development Europe+

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 while 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 this aim, we advocate for 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.
