Development policy state conference – resource justice meets AMAHORO! Baden-Württemberg and Burundi

Feminist development policy – ​​an introduction and reflection

Feminist struggles for greater equality and participation have been part of all societies for many centuries - but the discourses are mostly influenced by “Western” feminism. The digital event series “Feminist Development Policy: Women’s and LGBTQI+ Rights Worldwide” examines gender equality from a global perspective, shows examples from countries in the Global South and presents elements of feminist development policy.

The Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) pursues a feminist development policy and presented a strategy in March 2023 to promote the equal participation of all people in social, political and economic life - regardless of gender, gender identity, sexual orientation or skin color , disability or other characteristics. To start the series, two speakers will give an overview of feminist development policy, explain the background and reflect on current developments:

Speakers:

Women and girls in war and crisis areas

Feminist struggles for greater equality and participation have been part of all societies for many centuries - but the discourses are mostly influenced by “Western” feminism. The digital event series “Feminist Development Policy: Women’s and LGBTQI+ Rights Worldwide” examines gender equality from a global perspective, shows examples from countries in the Global South and presents elements of feminist development policy.

During war, all forms of discrimination that already exist in peacetime are exacerbated. This includes the gender-specific devaluation and disadvantage of women and girls. Not only does the humanitarian crisis caused by destruction and displacement in war hit women and girls harder. Sexual violence is also used specifically as a strategic means of warfare. Two speakers will report on the topic.Trigger warning: We would like to point out that the topics of violence, rape and abuse will be addressed during this event.

Feminist perspectives on the global climate crisis

Feminist struggles for greater equality and participation have been part of all societies for many centuries - but the discourses are mostly influenced by “Western” feminism. The digital event series “Feminist Development Policy: Women’s and LGBTQI+ Rights Worldwide” examines gender equality from a global perspective, shows examples from countries in the Global South and presents elements of feminist development policy.

The consequences of the climate crisis affect people differently, and gender is a crucial factor: gender roles determine social status, division of labor, access to resources and political participation. Women and children are many times more likely to die in a disaster than men. They suffer longer and more severely after crises, for example due to lower incomes and poorer access to means of production, food insecurity and malnutrition.

Speakers will be announced later.

Feminist Perspectives on Reproductive Health and Justice

Reproductive justice means that all people have the right to control their own bodies and have access to the resources and services necessary to make self-determined decisions. It is about ensuring that all people have the opportunity to make decisions about pregnancy, birth, contraception and abortion freely and without discrimination. Reproductive justice also includes protecting people's sexual and reproductive health and access to quality health care and information.
