13th Women’s Worlds Congress

"Transformations, Connections, and Movements"

The 13th Women’s Worlds (WW) Congress — an international and interdisciplinary meeting about women — will take place jointly with the Doing Gender 11 (Fazendo Gênero) Seminar from July 30th to August 4th, 2017 in Florianópolis, Brazil, at the Federal University of Santa Catarina (UFSC).

The overriding theme is "Transformations, Connections, and Movements". Our intention is to provide a forum for global debate beyond the North-South perspective. We also aim to stimulate discussion on innovative feminist study proposals and dynamic activism.

This will be a unique opportunity to bring together experiences, research, and voices from all over the world relating to women and gender issues. This will also be the first time that the WW conference is going to be hosted in South America.

Don’t miss this opportunity to critically evaluate the most important issues facing feminisms today, both in theory and practice.
