Announcing the Young Feminist Wire E-Learning Sessions!

Submitted by on 09/06/2011 5 Comments

The Young Feminist Wire is excited to present a series of four online e-learning sessions which explore:

  • concepts of women’s movements and movement building
  • characteristics of women’s movements
  • how women’s movements affect change with examples from different regions
  • the concept and practice of leadership in the context of movement building 
  • two key trends impacting women’s movements around the world: the rise of religious fundamentalisms; and resource mobilization for women’s organizing

In response to rising social unrest all over the world, more discussions are happening in online spaces such as Twitter and the blogosphere on effective organizing practices and how to build movements that lead to social change. This is an opportune time for women and especially young women to be engaging in these conversations from a feminist perspective.

Join the Wire community today and take part in these important discussions!

The sessions are open to Wire Community members only. If you are not a member of the Wire Community yet, then join us now to participate and to access reading materials and session power points.

We can only accept a maximum of 30 participants per session and registration is on a first come first served basis so register today.
