Webinar: "Voices of (anti-war) feminists from Russia today"

1smaller

Being a Russian feminist nowadays means not only oppression from the state but also isolation and discrimination from outside Russia. How do four different women activists that are against the war in Ukraine deal with this? This webinar will reflect on social (self)isolation of civil activists, intersectionality with being an ethnic minority or LGBTQ activist, and impacts on civic education. Join us on 21 June 5 PM -7 PM (CET) to listen to the activists' stories, and their experiences!

Speakers:
  • Natalya, informal education expert; educator working with youth Title: "Social (self)isolation of civil activists in nowadays Russia".
  • Roza, civic education activist in her 20s. Born in Chechnya, she and her family were internally displaced to a southern region of Russia. Between 2008 and 2013 she lived in a Chechen settlement, but went back to a "Russian" city later. Title: "To be a 'Chechen' woman in Russia and 'Russian' in Chechnya".
  • Arina, feminist researcher, an academic and a University teacher as well as LGBTQ activist.
  • Diana, informal education tutor and facilitator. Title: "Work of a female informal educator in a traditional patriarchal society".
The event is part of WIDE+ new webseminar series "Feminist reflections to promote peace in Ukraine and beyond". War is the most extreme form of violent patriarchy and nationalism against which we as feminists struggle. From a feminist perspective we will discuss in this series what strategies there exist to promote peacebuilding and what can we do to minimise the harm on women and girls, especially regarding conflict-related sexual violence, human trafficking, any other form of gender-based violence and lack of access to sexual reproductive health rights.

Situationen för kvinnorna i Mexiko är paradoxal. Kvinnomord och kvinnomisshandel är ett stort problem, minst 11 kvinnor mördas varje dag vilket är bland det högsta antalet i världen. Samtidigt har feministiska rörelser aldrig varit så starka, så synliga på gatorna och i den offentliga debatten. Den 7 mars och 9 mars har du möjlighet att ta del av samtal (online via zoom) med kvinnor från Mexiko som berättar om kvinnoorganisationers perspektiv på situationen och arbetet för att lösa de problem de uppmärksammar. Bli inspirerad och stötta dem genom att delta och lyssna på deras berättelser. Samtalen är på engelska.

9 March 16.30

Innan samtalet bjuder vi på en workshop om politisk broderi klockan 16.30 på Världskulturmuseet

Välkomna till en workshop där vi stöttar kvinnokampen i Mexiko genom att brodera tillsammans. Bordeando por la paz är ett kvinnokollektiv som startades i Mexiko ur ett behov att synliggöra våldet mot kvinnor. Genom att brodera namnen på de försvunna och mördade kvinnorna, och sedan visa upp sina aktivistiska hantverk i stadsrummet lyfts alla dessa kvinnor fram och våldet blottläggs . I denna workshop broderar vi i solidaritet med kvinnorna i Mexiko. Workshopen är öppen för alla som är intresserade av att stödja mänskliga rättigheter i Mexiko. Vi inleder med att berätta och visa bilder om Bordeamos por la paz. Därefter visar vi hur man broderar, och syr sedan tillsammans i ca 60 minuter. Broderikit finns till alla deltagare.
