Nordic panel discussion: Feminism and anti-feminism in the Nordic region


To mark the 15th anniversary of the journal Fett, the project aimed to arrange a panel discussion during 2019 between the editors of sister journals in the various Nordic nations about the situation of Nordic feminism. The project highlighted how Nordic feminists can influence the political agenda through feminist critique, investigate the causes behind the emergence of far-right attitudes that are hostile towards women, and discuss how Nordic feminists can work together to combat these attitudes. The idea was that the panel discussion should put these themes on the agenda in a Nordic context, and should contribute towards sharing experiences, building networks, securing commitment and increasing knowledge across national borders.
