AWID International Forum on Women's Rights and Development

The 2016 AWID International Forum on Women's Rights and Development “Feminist Futures: Building Collective Power for Rights and Justice” will take place from 5 to 9 May 2016 in Salvador, Bahia, Brazil.

You can contribute to the 2016 Forum by submitting a proposal to organize a session. This invitation is for those who believe in futures free from gendered oppressions, the realization of full rights for people and planet, and self-determination from the body to the nation.

At a time of increased global repression and the attempted silencing of progressive voices, the 2016 Forum of the Association for Women’s Rights in Development is a space for feminist voices and our allies to imagine futures free from gendered oppressions, racial, ethnic, and economic injustice, environmental degradation, and war and violence, to renew solidarities and advance concrete joint action agendas. 

At the Forum, ideas and experiences of diverse voices and movements that will converge to examine the lessons of the past will be shared, conjure fresh perspectives and daring ideas, and explore new ways of working together that move us beyond our existing silos and build our collective power.

To submit your proposal please fill out the online application form or you can email to request a Word application form or if you have any questions.

Your proposal to organize a session at the Forum should respond to the Forum guiding questions.

Proposal deadline: 26 June 2015
