International Gender Policy / LGBTIQ+

The global rise of structural oppression and violence against women and LGBTIQ+, the strengthening of anti-gender networks and anti-feminist attitudes and the fragmentation of feminist movements are contemporary challenges. We analyse (patriarchal) gender and power relations, support spaces for action for a democratisation of gender relations and promote intersectional and international gender-political narratives. In doing so, we stand up for reproductive justice, strengthen feminist solidarities and coalitions and call for a feminist organisational and leadership culture.
