Toolkit with ready-to-use tweets and posts for a feminist Europe
Join the FEM-EU campaign on twitter (see picture on the right).
To advocate for a feminist Europe and feminist candidates running for the upcoming EU elections, Young Feminist Europe has developed a social media toolkit as part of its “Her Europe Campaign”. The purpose of the toolkit is to help amplify the voices of (young) women on why #EuropeNeedsFeminism and how Europe is important. Feel free to use all the material provided, either by copy pasting or as an inspiration. You can access the toolkit here: toolkit-link, and download the visuals here visuals-link.

Ecofeminist Scorecard of European Parties
Take the temperature of your country’s parties, how ecofeminist are they really? This scorecard shows how the European political groups score on important ecofeminist issues (if they agree, disagree or have no opinion about it). It doesn’t cover everything, but it is a good starting point for you to dig deeper and learn more about issues that matters to you. You can also use the scorecard to measure the national parties in this election more closely, since national parties’ positions might vary from the broad European political group they belong to. The scorecard, with results per grouping, with further information is here: https://www.wecf.org/ecofeministscorecard/
