This week in Vienna the website of the exciting project feminIEsta went online. From their self-description:
feminIEsta gathers work results, projects and initiatives that have crossed and crossed the Institute for International Development of the University of Vienna (IE for short, hence: feminIEsta); that took one of their origins at IE, converge there, branch out and network further from IE, or even distance themselves a bit.
feminIEsta intervenes both scientifically and politically in international development (politics) and takes a stand on its dilemmas, its promises, its violence.
feminIEsta applies feminist critique to theories and practices throughout, even if it may and should be argued what this means in detail.
feminIEsta wants to arouse curiosity about strategies that have already been tried and tested and about strategies that are still unrealized and desirable for bringing together development-critical and feminist approaches.
In this sense: Stay rebel and feminIEsta!
