Call for Members Feminist Network

 

Join the Feminist Network and become a member of FYEG’s team developing best practices that will shape the feminist Europe of today!

The Feminist Network is a Europe-wide platform where we listen, share and take action! In the next several months we will discuss topics from all different disciplines such as modern womanhood, inspiring movements, sexuality, intersectional feminism and so much more. The Feminist Network is the place where we exchange knowledge about what’s happening in the feminist world right now and how we can be part of it. The FN is there to galvanise your own power to take control over the woman* narrative, and to strengthen each other over individual goals and collective actions.

The Feminist Network will work alongside the political platform of FYEG to explore the possibilities of doing online campaigns, webinars, publications and writing policy papers. Here, we can work as an expert team on the implementation of safe space policies and gender mainstreaming in our organisation, organise empowering events or develop strategies on how to smash patriarchy at last!

Please note that the working group will consist of women, trans and genderqueer persons only.

 

Aims and Tasks of the Working Group

As a member of the Feminist Network you will contribute to:

  • helping with the acquirement and create professional documents on current and selected topics

  • providing the groundwork for the formulation of political positions

  • promoting the involvement of member organisations in FYEG.

  • providing space for a debate between young activists on the European level

  • communicating FYEG’s positions internally

  • communicating FYEG’s political positions externally with the approval of the Executive Committee

  • supporting the EC and Prep-teams in policy-related preparations for FYEG events

 

Commitment

The Feminist Network will divide its tasks internally, and will mainly communicate online through different communication channels. An ability to work both in a team and to take the initiative as an individual is highly encouraged. There is the possibility to have a physical meeting if desired by the Working Group, which can be made possible by a funding specially set up for the Working Groups. WGs are the only body in FYEG which are open to everyone. It does not have a maximum number of volunteers. Working Groups will have a fixed meeting day and time. This will be validated by the Working Group in the first meeting. The mandate of the WG will last from October to April 2020.

 

Applicant Profile

  • Member of a FYEG member organisation, observer organisation or individuals.

  • Available to attend the kick-off online meeting at the beginning of October.
