Welcome at The Next Wave!

What concerns young feminists and how can we help them? That's a question we've been asking ourselves at de Vrouwenraad for a while. Whom better to answer this question if not young feminists themselves? That's why we launched The Next Wave. A tongue-in-cheek reference to the so-called feminist waves, but mostly a name that serves as a reminder that feminism keeps on moving. The Next Wave wants to renew itself and keep an open mind towards anything that might come up at the horizon.

For now, we want to focus on the following things:

  • We want to introduce young (and older) feminists to different existing organisations and initatives. On the page 'organisations' we try to compile an overview. Are there organisations missing? Let us know!
  • We want to support and ignite feminist activism in our society. We'll work on a FAQ with answers and informations concerning this topic.
  • Since two years we organise the Feminist Lab, a three-day gathering for young feminists where we look for concrete solutions to pressing issues. In 2018 the theme was 'how can feminism change the world' and in 2019 we discussed 'women* and public space'. Offline meetings are crucial for feminists to connect, so want to keep on organising events like this.

What's up next? We will let you know. In the meanwhile we'd love to hear your remarks, tips, questions. Get in touch with Carlien by e-mail (nvr.ccoppieters@amazone.be) or through the contact page on this website.
