EVENT POSTPONED, NEW DATE NEXT SEMESTER TBA. REPLACED BY THIS ONLINE MINI-WORKSHOP.

Women commonly face challenges to gender equality in many post-Soviet countries. Among these are revival of conservative political agendas, ambiguous public opinions on women’s roles in society and gender stereotypes, as well as anti-gender initiatives supported by the church, by governments as well as by parts of civil society. The purpose of this workshop is to gather scholars from different disciplines and countries to discuss these tendencies and its consequences, including the reactions and initiatives by women’s organisations. We will discuss new activism and ways to empowerment.
The event is free of charge. 

The workshop is organised by the Institute for Russian and Eurasian Studies (IRES), Department of Cultural Anthropology and Ethnology and Uppsala Forum on Democracy, Peace and Justice, all three at Uppsala University, as well as the Centre for Baltic and East European Studies (CBEES) at Södertörn University.
