There is a lack of knowledge and awareness among policymakers and activists about what the anti-gender movement is, how it operates, the risks it poses and how to effectively develop strategies to counter it - in order to defend and advance human rights for all.
In March 2021, CFFP published Power over Rights: Understanding and Countering the Transnational Anti-Gender Movement, the first comprehensive analysis of the anti-gender movement from a policy perspective. Since then, CFFP has been working to raise awareness about the work of the anti-gender movement among policy-makers and to strengthen the capacity of civil society to respond to the anti-gender movement by building an international, interdisciplinary Hub. The Hub is intended to facilitate a space for exchange, mutual learning, and strengthen alliances across policy sectors. CFFP places a particular focus on advancing the international debate about the anti-gender campaigns as both a manifestation and reinforcement of the wider anti-democratic trends.
This conference concludes the project "United for our Rights”, implemented since March 2021 with the financial support of the German Federal Foreign Office. Other project activities included background talks for policymakers and civil society, a summer institute, two policy briefs, and initial scoping meetings for the Hub. The conference aims at raising awareness of how the international anti-gender movement relates to the wider anti-democratic trend, providing space for policymakers, academics, practitioners to reflect on how to address this issue.
