Tactics and Strategies of Modern Feminism in Russia

I will speak about how the shift to the right in the Russian politics, and a number of laws discriminating against women, provoked a boost of feminist movement in Russia, and also why they are the most promising among civil initiatives. I will also explain which methods “Eve's Ribs” – a feminist platform I am coordinating -  is using to unite these movements in Russia and abroad.

Leda will be involved in the following FiLiA session:
