Feminism and the fight for gender equality is a core value for the green movement in Europe. Today, we see brave struggles from a new generation in Iran, but also forces of backlash threatening reproductive rights in the U.S. How do these global challenges and discourses on feminism connect, mirror, and resonate with different struggles in Europe? Join us online for an inspiring panel debate!
About the event
This Green-Red Dialogue will address the situation of women and the feminist movement from different perspectives and geographies. Anahita Nassir, Iranian political scientist from Catalonia, will speak about the current struggle of women in Iran; Magdalena Galkiewicz, secretary general of the Greens in Poland, will be in charge of explaining the violation of women’s rights and the right to abortion in Poland; the political scientist Maria Freixanet, an expert in feminism and researcher on gender and politics, will give us an overview of the situation in Spain and Catalonia.
All of them will establish a debate on the global situation of feminism in the world today and the challenges it faces, as well as the role Europe can and should play in ensuring that women’s rights continue to advance.
GEF’s Green Red Dialogues, organised with the support of Fundació Nous Horitzons, aim to tackle pressing issues of our time and the challenges Europe faces with an explicit social and green lens. From COVID-19 to the war in Ukraine, far right resurgence to feminist struggles – these issues tend to reverberate across multiple countries and domains. Through the dialogues, we connect the red and the green and highlight Southern European perspectives on crucial topics and developments across the continent.
