Fair Play South West blog: Towards feminist democracy, populist forces and feminist activism 

Feminist local and transnational researcher/activists in Bristol and the SW of England discuss and analyse how the rise of populism locally and in Europe, and the context created by the Brexit debate, are eroding women’s rights and posing new challenges for feminist activism and women’s leadership.

Drawing from their research and experience of activism and leadership to promote women’s equality in a variety of local, national and transnational sectors and institutions, they consider how the loss of legitimacy of EU mechanisms to promote and implement equality may impact on women’s rights and services locally, what alternative transnational mechanisms and resources might be drawn upon, and how feminists are engaging with challenges posed.
