Theme I. Women’s Movements of Past, Present & Future: Generations in Feminism 

Theme co-ordinators: Theme I Women’s Movements: prof.dr. Berteke Waaldijk, Iris van der Tuin, Sandra Prlenda

This theme seeks an interdisciplinary range of papers focusing on women’s and feminist movements in past, present and future. A discussion about the interconnectedness of these movements across different European and global spaces and chronologies is envisioned. With this, we wish to discuss generation in feminism, i.e. a discussion of generations in feminism, the intergenerational dynamics inside women’s movements, but also feminist generation and regeneration, or the productivity of feminism. What is it that keeps the women’s and feminist movement going? What are the singularly European perspectives on feminist generation, in what way do women’s movements interact with other movements, and what are the specificities of the European women’s and feminist movements of past, present and future, both in epistemological and in practical terms? What are their strategies of acting, situating and repositioning themselves in the changing, historical or contemporary, contexts of European policies (especially equal opportunities), cultural developments, and politics of knowledge? 

Key words: generations, new feminisms, histories of women’s movements, EU-equal opportunities
