How can we achieve gender justice and liberation?
While progress has been made in many regions of the world and women do have more rights, freedoms and opportunities than in the past, we are far from having achieved true liberation and equality. Even in Europe and the USA (which consider themselves the beacons of enlightenment and democracy) women are being discriminated against, are economically disadvantaged, and are confronted with violence every day. While there are most probably more feminists than ever, powers pushing an anti-feminist backlash are on the rise. Who are they, who supports them and how can they be confronted? Which feminist strategies are successful? How can women get more power? How can we achieve gender justice and liberation for all? How can new people join the struggle? What can we all do in our daily lives? These questions are discussed by Elevate’s panelists and the audience.
