This new series of in-depth interviews explores womens’ experiences of resisting and promoting feminist ideals. Our ‘Common Cause‘ defines feminism as an inclusive concept that is about protecting the rights of people while opposing any kind of oppression. Thus, part of this series includes interview(s) around LGBTQI initiatives.
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.
