A feminist party in the parliament – a good idea?

A warm welcome to the next NPBIAC gathering on Monday May 24th, 7-9 pm. We are proud to have former spokesperson for Swedish Feminist Initiative - Devrim Mavi as host for this meeting.

Five years ago, in April 2005, Feminist Initiative in Sweden announced its existence and its intentions to run in the elections the year after. It was the start of a new feminist experiment in Sweden, marked by activism, organizing and tumultuous politics. Devrim Mavi, former spokesperson for Feminist Initiative, will speak about how the party started, about the specific challenges for feminist politics in a parliamentary structure and the massive negative response that Feminist Initiative faced.

You are invited to a discussion about the possibilities and impossibilities with parliamentary feminism, and about the demonization of feminists.

This occasion is open to 20 participants and you need to RSVP to nobodyputsbabyinacorner2009@live.com to be able to join, please do so before May 24th at noon.

Join us for another unforgettable evening!

NPBIAC/Johanna, Malin and Devrim.
