6 new interviews in Our Common Causes series in collaboration with Jennifer Ramme and her team

This new series of in-depth interviews explores womens’ experiences of resisting and promoting feminist ideals.

There are 6 new interviews available at the site movementsarchive.wordpress.com:

Peace Mothers (Turkey, Kurdistan and Germany) – “It is our pain that brought us together”

Non Una Di Meno (Italy) – “Together we gain strength to change what is wrong with society”

Women*Strike Committee Berlin – “Does anyone really believe that equality exists in Germany?”

Proceder / Ni Una Menos (Colima, Mexico) – “If you’re an activist and you don’t have hope, you’re in deep trouble”

Tbilisi Pride (Georgia) – “That situation for LGBBTQI* people in Georgia makes you feel like a secondary citize and a person deprived of basic rights”

Insight (Ukraine) – “We urge absolutely all women to join us, because we believe in women’s solidarity” (in English and Ukrainian)

The series is the result of the work carried out by social movement scholar Jennifer Ramme and her team of students in the context of the seminar on social protests and gender regimes at the European University Viadrina in 2019. They are published in collaboration with WIDE+. In the interviews, the activists talk about the issues they struggle with in various places in the world, though most articles focus on informal movements in Europe and Latin America.

The series is edited by Jennifer Ramme and is also part of a newly-formed social archive project (currently in Polish, but in other languages at a later stage) documenting feminist initiatives and struggles.
