Global Conference: Women and the 21 Century – Feminist Alternatives
Датум: 12/14/2010
 
 
 
Global Conference
« Women and the 21 Century – Feminist Alternatives »
16th – 18th December 2010 
Supreme Council of Culture, Cairo
 
 
                              Concluding Session - Summary
 
The Cairo Conference will stay as a memorable  event and a fruitul mix of ideas, generations and cultures. We learnt and shared a lot, gathered by a strong, common involvement around Nawal al Sadaawi.
 
The French feminist historian Michelle Perrot wrote that the History of women has always been written on the sand. Let us change this and make the Cairo conference a sustainable stage and a decisive step of our international  feminist  common process.
 
In order to achieve this goal we must keep in mind five key ideas promoted and developed during the conference:
 
I.   Uncompromising
Towards all forms of discrimination, oppression and violence against women; towards all patriarchal values,  that inferiorize women in both public and private life.  
 
II.  Continuity
We are building step by step and each step is a new achievement.  Without Skopje, we would not have reached Cairo and Cairo is now the bases of the next event, in a process nurtured by a continuous feminist involvement and work on the ground in our different countries.  
 
III.  Political action
We are  adressing  the policy makers,  our governments, our parliaments, the national and international institutions and strive to make our voices heard regarding the situation of women globally. We need to intereact and invest in the democratic movement, the peace movement and to  spread in all their  components our feminist analyses: no to cultural relativism, no to nationalisms, no to social tolerance towards discrimination and violence against women!
 
 
IV.  Feminist balance of power
In order to contribute to the creation of the requested balance of power, we need to further develop our action to support the access of feminist women in the decision making spheres while striving to change patriarchal mentalities and attitudes by developing all possible means of feminist education.
 
V.  Reflexion and action
To keep the link and a permanent interaction between grassroot feminist activism and feminist studies and research is an absolute necessity in order to strengthen our feminist analyses and capacities of intervention.
 
 
VI. Next step
The next stage of our process would be a Strategic Conference «21st Century - Feminist Alternatives » in 2012. The place to be decided next year.
 

Warm thanks to all the participants.

 
On behalf of the  organisational committee
