"Young Feminist Europe is an open platform that aims to amplify young feminist voices and activities across Europe."


History

Young Feminist Europe was initially founded by a group of young diverse Brussels-based feminists in 2015 and it can trace its roots from the participation of its members to meetings organised by women’s organisations in Brussels, celebrating the 20th anniversary of the Beijing Conference. The group started out with regular participatory monthly meetings for anyone that identified as a feminist and then expanded into an online community in 2017 with the help of members from the AGORA alumni

As Brussels is such a transit city, Young Feminist Europe as a platform has passed through many hands of leadership. Although there is no official hierarchy, the organisation of Young Feminist Europe has always consisted of volunteer working-groups with key members taking leading positions.


Mission

Young Feminist Europe is keeping up with the original ethos of the platform by continuing to be a space that was created by young feminists for young feminists. We believe that young women and others across the feminist spectrum can play a vital role in shaping the future of Europe to reflect intersectional values. The core of our mission is to provide an open space for young feminists to implement their activism through writing, campaigns and projects at a national and European level.


"To achieve Young Feminist Europe's mission, we aim to harness the power of feminist grassroots and hashtag activism."


Grassroots Activism

Capacity building with our core base and expanding our membership. We also organise and collaborate on feminist events, projects and initiatives mainly in Brussels, as well as engage with key stakeholders around the EU bubble.

Digital Activism

Provide online spaces for engagement and increase our outreach to young feminists across Europe to enable them to take part in our activities. Our channels also allow us to develop our network with the wider feminist community.


"As a growing platform, we aim to become an official NGO that operates across Europe so that we can increase our outreach and scope in activities."

Our aim for the next 12 months for Young Feminist Europe is the following:

  • Finalise our #HerEurope campaign that aims to bridge the gap between young women's participation in the EU elections 2019;
  • Complete capacity building exercises to increase our grassroots membership base;
  • Develop sustainable streams of funding;
  • Run a second campaign that aims to highlight the barriers surrounding female sexuality called "My Clit Counts";
  • Become a registered international NGO that operates across Europe with an umbrella membership base.

You can help us reach these goals by donating to Young Feminist Europe so that we can not only continue to do the work that we are doing but also increase our outreach to young feminists across Europe and enhance our scope of activities.
