One of the characteristics of the current democracy crisis, not only in Latin America and Europe but worldwide, is the rise and strengthening of far-right parties and political and religious fundamentalism. It is ironic that political positions that are essentially anti-democratic, are strengthening and expanding under the guise of democracy. Perhaps this is one of the consequences of exclusionary, predatory, capitalist democracies that deny rights to a large part of the population.

From the very beginning of the OTRT initiative, we developed joint communications strategies to support women’s human rights and democracy locally, and we connected researchers and feminists with grassroots activists.

As a result of this collaboration of 20 women’s funds in Europe and Latin America, our first research output, coordinated by Diana Granados and Nuria Alabao, was produced, thanks to the participation of all the women’s funds and activists that we support.

In this research we could establish that the field of action where feminism moves goes far beyond gender claims. It also includes every social and life field. And this was only the beginning. Since 2019, we have kept working on this track: co-creating communicational and research materials is an essential part of our purpose.

Understanding the consequences of fundamentalism in society and in our bodies, and thinking together the strategies to counter them are, for us, key steps forward to the feminist future we dream about.
