Announcing the Young Feminist Wire E-Learning Sessions!

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.

    Hi, Sounds like a great idea but being based in Australia the time is not friendly to participation. Would you be able to put a pod cast up of the session afterwards that we can listen to? Thx Louise

    Hi Louise,
    Thanks for your interest. We will be allowing access to some of the resources after the sessions are over for Wire members.

    Sign up if you haven’t already and will make sure to let you know when they are up!

    Hi, I was just wondering about time zones as well. (I’m in New Zealand so expect a big time difference) I tried converting but was a little unsure how to do that or where to originate from. Could someone point me in the right direction? Thank you :)
