Feminist Alternatives to the "New Normality"

Inspired by the work of community support networks of marginalized groups located on the peripheries of institutional power, the aim of this webinar is to explore feminist alternatives to the new normality which go beyond the State and policy recommendations. This activity will bring together members of different feminist movements, organizations and collectives from the “Global South” to continue amplifying grassroots feminist alternatives that emerged during the pandemic and collectively explore how to build and consolidate feminist economies and societies centered around care and the sustainability of life.

  • Date: Saturday March 13th
  • Time: 2:30pm to 4:30pm UTC

The assembly took place in English and Spanish

Description

Ever since its outbreak, the COVID-19 pandemic has been highlighting the un-sustainability and violence of the current system, the growing inequalities within our societies and the profit-driven approaches of governments and corporations in their responses to the crisis.

At a time when mainstream discourses are focusing on getting the economy “back to normal”, there is a growing emergence of feminist critiques and counter-narratives and practices opposing business as usual (to name a few: AWID's campaign and manifesto “From a Feminist Bailout to a Global Feminist Economic Recovery”; “Building Bridges Not Walking on Backs: A Feminist Economic Recovery Plan for COVID-19” by the Hawaii State Commission on the Status of Women, “the African Feminist Post-COVID-19 Economic Recovery Statement” and “A Feminist Economic Recovery Plan for Canada: Making the Economy Work for Everyone” by the YWCA Canada).

Inspired by the work of community support networks of marginalized groups located on the peripheries of institutional power (especially people of color, feminist, queer and trans communities, migrants, refugees and undocumented people, sex workers, working class, people with disabilities etc.), the aim of this webinar is to explore feminist alternatives to the new normality which go beyond the State and policy recommendations. This activity will bring together members of different feminist movements, organizations and collectives from the “Global South” to continue amplifying grassroots feminist alternatives that emerged during the pandemic and collectively explore how to build and consolidate feminist economies and societies centered around care and the sustainability of life.

On the occasion of March 8th, this webinar will also be an opportunity to celebrate some achievements of feminist movements and to reflect on the challenges and opportunities laying ahead.
