Feminismos Internacionalistas

In recent years, feminist movements have become a strong and diverse transnational force that is challenging right-wing populism as well as authoritarian neoliberalism. They are coordinating the international feminist strikes on March 8 and generating other, ongoing spaces for dialogue and exchange across national borders.

This doesn’t mean making abstractions or generalizations from local differences. On the contrary, it seeks to paint a more complete picture of the interlocking systems of oppression, on which the global capitalist market is based, and to find common ground between struggles. In this way, feminist movements simultaneously act both locally and transnationally, deconstructing traditional ideas of what internationalism should look like, enacting a new form of internationalism based on creating everyday connections between situated struggles.

We accompany the construction of those transnational feminist networks that have a left, intersectional, antipatriarchal, anticapitalist and socio-ecological perspective, which are strongly rooted in the Global South. That accompaniment also includes the promotion of platforms for dialogue with more traditional actors and institutions, as well as strengthening and expanding the networks and coordination between movements, in order to build radical democratic systems that put our collective well-being at the center.
