Opening panel : Resisting the anti-gender backlash

CEU Nador 15

In Europe and Central Asia, but also globally, the anti-gender movements are attacking their opposition using different political spaces and influencing both at a level of politics and policy. The narratives have been present for decades now, but the level of organisation and mobilisation that we see today can be considered as their peak. By imitating the methods of the feminist and human rights organisations, they occupy the spaces and the public discourse in the parliament, on TV and the streets to oppose the human-rights based initiatives.
The panel will explore the main actors and the impact of the anti-gender movements in our region, the responses developed by the feminist and transgender organising and the good practices to build on our future work towards gender justice.
