Conference (London) – THE FUTURE OF EUROPEAN FEMINISM

Event: A European Feminist Summit: Saturday 15 March

New European Feminism

Crossing borders, across genders – feminist issues in the 2000s

As part of the annual London Festival of Europe, the Feminist Summit aspires to bring together a group of people across borders, genders and generations who have a shared interest in feminist issues today.

We hope to contribute to a revival of the feminist debate in Europe and to challenge participants to revaluate how feminism might contribute to the European Project.

Themes

Intergenerational experience and perspectives on feminism in Europe today, and how feminism might be a useful framework to critique and contribute to the evolution of Europe.

Sexualisation in the Arts and Media, and the role of the media in inspiring, reinforcing or modifying role models and stereotypes.

Feminist engagement in the world of business and politics, how feminists are changing institutions of business and politics from the inside, and what some of the current forms of formal feminist political engagement are in Europe today.
