Mobilizing for Democracy

Feminist paths of resistance

 

Feminisms connect women and their allies and can be a driving element in the resistance towards nationalism and right-wing populism. The Women’s March in Washington at the start of the year demonstrated this in an impressive manner. What are the prerequisites for such mobilisation and how does it go forward from there?
Also in Germany, where we are having a bumper election year in 2017, we are facing wide-ranging decisions. Right-wing populism continues to strengthen and is causing a gradual erosion of basic values in the “middle” of society. How can a political mobilisation for the open, democratic and thus immigration society be possible?
