Tallinn Feminist Forum 2019User's  Nele Laos project in the category Civic initiative

First-ever Tallinn Feminist Forum needs your help!

Tallinn Feminist Forum (TALFF) is a meeting place for those who care about equal rights. At the Forum, we’ll discuss together how to create a sustainable and caring social movement and build the society we ourselves want to live in. What does a feminist movement mean? What obstacles can stand on the way of these movements? How to be considerate with each other and how to take care of ourselves? How can different groups cooperate? These are the questions we want to ask in the workshops, lectures, discussions and at the evening party.

TALFF takes place at the Estonian Academy of Arts and at the café of Contemporary Art Museum of Estonia on 2nd November. Participation is free of charge and the Estonian Academy of Arts is wheelchair accessible.

Society won’t become more just on its own. Discriminatory and repressive practices do not just disappear. Rights are rarely "given", rather they are demanded — whether it is women's right to vote, the right to go to university, a ban on racist discrimination, or the rights of the LGBT+ community. Behind every relevant social justice change, there have been people who have pursued and mobilised for it to happen. The topic of  2019 is "Movement", because faced with right-wing extremist politics and authoritarianism in Eastern Europe, right now the importance of feminist community movements and joint resistance has never been greater.

Help us cover the organising costs! Thanks to your support we can bring guest speakers from Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Finland and Germany to the forum and prepare all the materials needed for the workshops.

TALFF is organised by NGO Oma Tuba/Feministeerium and a number of brave volunteers.
