Welcome to an online discussion about the importance of solidarity between the feminist movement and the trans movement, Thursday March 18th, at 2 p.m. GMT.
In Iceland, there has historically been a sense of solidarity between the women’s movement and LGBTQ+ movement. This solidarity has strengthened the work of these respective movements, creating a society where women’s rights and LGBTQ+ rights are respected and highly valued. On an international level, anti-trans voices are becoming ever louder and are threatening feminist solidarity across borders. How can we strengthen feminist and queer solidarity, and create a vibrant international feminist movement that does not exclude any marginalized group?
Participating in the discussion are Marion Böker, Vice President of the International Alliance of Women (IAW) and Chair of the Committee on International Affairs at the German Women’s Council (Deutscher Frauenring); Mridul Wadhwa, Manager of the Forth Valley Rape Crisis Centre; Tatjana Latinovic, President of the Icelandic Women’s Rights Association; and Ugla Stefanía, President of Trans Ísland. Alex Elliott moderates the discussion.
