COSMOS roundtable to discuss on feminism(s) today from a grassroots perspective.

The 25th of November is the international day for the elimination of violence against women – a yearly event that hosts many initiatives all over the world, from marches in the streets to social media actions, and functions as a climax of the widespread daily efforts pursued globally to achieve gender equality and equal rights for all genders. At COSMOS we decided to organize a roundtable to speak about feminism(s) today and their stance on gender-based violence as well as their mobilizations on other women’s issue. We hence invited Anna LavizzariArianna Mainardi, Elena Pavan  and Stefania Voli  – all based at the Scuola Normale Superiore and Research Fellows at COSMOS –  and Zorica Sirocic (University of Graz) to have a conversation on the boundaries and intersections of feminism(s) today from a grassroots perspective.

The COSMOS roundtable will be chaired by Alice Mattoni (SNS) and will take place in Aula Simone del Pollaiolo (Palazzo Strozzi, Scuola Normale Superiore, Firenze) from 2pm to 4pm on November the 22nd.
