Between May 31 and June 2, 2023, the challenges of fundamentalism and how to deal with them brought together feminist activists and women’s funds from more than 20 countries in a joint European meeting in Sofia, Bulgaria. The purpose of the first-of-its-kind event on European territory was to provide a space where donors, funds, and representatives of human rights organizations can communicate and exchange experiences to prevent attacks by fundamentalist movements in their countries – Bulgaria, Armenia, Georgia, Poland, Ukraine and many others. Here are the main results of the meeting. And here are the reasons why Feminist Movements from Europe and Latin America Built Common Strategies for Dealing with Fundamentalism.
This video was recorded during the European meeting and collects some of the key reflections about the Initiative.
