Public presentation of Feministisk initiativ and meeting with Gudrun Schyman

October 28th at 6 pm / Elektro Ljubljana Union Hall, entrance at the Stara mestna elektrarna – Elektro Ljubljana

You are cordially invited to the public presentation of the Feministisk initiativ by Gudrun Schyman, one of two party leaders. The latter was previously a member of the Left Party and as such also a member of the national parliament 1988-2003. Gudrun Schyman is since 2010 a local politician in Simrishamn (hometown), member of the national board of Feminist initiativ and one of two party leaders. Her professional work is educating and lecturing in the area of gender equality and nondiscrimination.

Feministisk initiativ has a vision of a different society. Their ideological starting point is anti-racist feminism. The division between left and right is not irrelevant, but discrimination, racism and sexism is present on both sides and doesn't necessarily disappear with socialism. Neither liberalism, with a focus on individual rights, solve the structural inequality in society. That's why an ideologically independent feminist party is important and Feministiskt initiativ is that party in Sweden.

In the elections of 2014, Feministiskt initiativ won seats in the European Parliament and 13 municipalities around Sweden. Together with feminists from other parties we pursue every person's equal rights and opportunities regardless of sex, skin colour, ethnicity, class, sexuality, ability, gender or religious conviction. Feministiskt initiativ had approximately 22,000 members (2014) and about 80 member groups.
