At the FIFDH 2021, we kicked off a year-long traverse through women's projects* in the public space, here and elsewhere.
What do the streets of Kinshasa and Geneva, Dakar and Lausanne have in common, and what do the activists who speak out there have in common? Women* are everywhere, pounding the pavement to make their demands loud and clear, but the sound of their footsteps resonates differently whether on the concrete pavements of Geneva or in the lively streets of African cities. We are building bridges to underline the kinship, nuances and differences that make sense. We want to bring together the "elsewhere" and the "here", to open a window on distant and international issues, but also to be anchored in the local fabric and to talk about what is happening at home.
