The future of feminisms in the Nordic region
How do feminist movements react to global crises, diversity and increased mobility? How are major inequalities handled in society? Which challenges are feminist movements in the Nordic countries facing today? The aim of this Nordic network was to identify and discuss the commonalities and specificities of feminist movements in the Nordic countries, the status of Nordic state feminism and the transnational relations between feminist communities.
The ambition of the project was to gain knowledge about the central challenges faced by feminist movements and about how best to deal with these challenges. Special attention was given to the intersection between gender and other grounds for discrimination and to feminist initiatives within public institutions. The network organized a series of workshops and gathered researchers and other stakeholders. The results were presented online and in various scholarly and popular-scientific publications.
