Feminism in Asia – #FeministAsia

The regional Feminism project in Asia formed an Asian-wide network of progressive male and female feminists and political economists. The alliance aimed to shape regional and global debates and agendas on economic equality and the division of labour while challenging the arguments about capitalism and neoliberalism. Women’s concerns and feminist critique shall be integrated into Asian social justice.

This project ended in June 2020.
