WIDE+ is a European network of feminist activists, scholars, and women’s rights organisations that reaches out to 300 associations, through its national membership-based networks and organisations across Europe. It aims to promote women’s rights by analyzing the systemic causes of inequality and advocating for transformative change. WIDE+ comes from a longstanding collaboration between feminists in the global South and feminist economists. In the last five years WIDE+ has been able to connect this global expertise with feminist activism in Europe.
WIDE+ grew out of the WIDE network, which gained more than 25 years experience in advocacy and movement-building and in transforming development, macro-economic and women’s rights policies at the European and international level. WIDE closed down in 2011.
WIDE+ has been active since 2012 and was established as a formal network in 2015.
