Rod-i-Levica-2Women Space, within its educational program Antifasiscist studies, organizes promotion of the second publication GENDER AND THE LEFT on Monday, December 16th 2013, in the Media Center of Nis.The publication was created as a reminder of the topics, debates and discussions that were taken during eight debates in the series Gender and The Left 2, organized by Belgrade Youth Center and Women INDOK center, and supported by the Foundation Rosa Luxemburg, during the 2013. This project is a continuation of the debate program implemented during 2012, also with the Belgrade Youth Center.

During this year, debated topics included: trade unions, economic empowerment, culture and subculture, queer philosophy and activism, gender inclusion within the mental health policies, new technologies and social networks, motherhood, eco-feminism.


Speakers included: 

  1. Lidija Vasiljevic, editor of the publication (ŽINDOK) 
  2. Magda Janjic, editor for the of NIN’s social networks and blogger 
  3. Tanja Markovic, activist 
  4. Aleksandra Žikic, activist

The aim of the project GENDER AND THE LEFT was the emancipation through education and open space for critical thinking and questioning works of social movements with special attention given to feminism in the former Yugoslavia. The topic of gender and the left was neglected and painted with a lot of prejudices, so therefore is a challenge, inspiration and hopefully interesting stimulus for all activists, students, researchers and for all those who deal with alternative politics. Our lectures are created so that after the theoretical introduction to the specific topic, there is always space for discussion and debate, and everyone is welcome.

Women INDOK Training Center is working with achieving women equality in the public sphere, focusing primarily on the media. With critical content analysis, research and education, communicating between the media and their users, aiming to reduce misogynistic and stereotypical contents.
