Feminism must be more political in confronting the current multiple crises.
This is the key message from the international conference “Movements, Borders, Rights? Feminist Perspectives on Global Issues in Europe” which took place in Brussels 24-25 October 2017.
Over two days, around 170 gender rights activists, professionals and academics from 31 countries came together across generations and continents to exchange and sharpen their understanding of the current situation. The voices of migrant and refugee women were prominent throughout the debates. Three dimensions of the European political crisis were discussed: the political backlash; the movement of refugees; and economic development and trade policies.
