Feminist Responses to the Global Rise in Right-Wing Extremism
On March 22, 2022, CRIAW-ICREF hosted the “Feminist Responses to the Global Rise in Right-Wing Extremism” participatory parallel event as part of the NGO CSW66 Forum. This event was held online, over Zoom.
This participatory parallel event opened with presentations from two speakers, Kavita Krishnan (All India Progressive Women’s Association and the Communist Party of India, Marxist Leninist) and Miriam Edelson (CRIAW-ICREF). Presenters spoke to the impacts of right-wing extremism in their context and effective strategies to counter it. After the presentations, participants were invited into break out rooms for small group discussions. Participants then reconvened and the discussion group facilitators presented what was discussed.
The key findings from the small group discussions were summarized in a report by the same name. You can access this report here.
