Feminist Leadership: Unveiling Feminist Leadership (1/3)

In the first episode of our 3-part series, we embark on an exploration of feminist leadership. What exactly is it, and what is it not? Join us as we uncover the beliefs and principles that underpin this transformative leadership approach. For this, we’ll hear from two remarkable women who've dedicated their lives to feminist causes. Srilatha Batliwala, a lifelong feminist activist and scholar from South India, shares her insights, emphasizing that feminist leadership goes beyond mere gender identity. Elena Ghizzo, co-founder of the Feminist Hiking Collective, reveals how feminist leadership challenges existing power structures and offers a fresh perspective on leadership.

This episode is part of the series:

This series hands the microphone to people whose voices don’t often get heard - people now making choices which don’t conform to laws or customs - or whose views have long been disregarded, even censored. Its about communities fighting for basic human rights and its about the diverse tools of their struggles. We discover how women are securing their rights through political protest, we look in detail at women’s reproductive rights and we go into LGBT communities worldwide.
