Feminist movements are gaining strength all over the world. They are among the most significant opponents of a global right-wing populism. Between 12 and 15 September 2019, the Rosa-Luxemburg-Stiftung, the Care Revolution network, and the Konzeptwerk Neue Ökonomie hosted the Feminist Futures Festival in the Zollverein, a former coal mine in Essen. More than 1,700 attendees, including numerous international guests from 40 different countries, exchanged experiences, debated strategies, developed connections, and created new coalitions. Apart from that, we also had a whole lot of fun together. Our conclusion? By number of attendees the festival was the largest event the RLS has organized in its history, and also one of Germany’s biggest-ever feminist events. Reason enough to make feminist (class) struggles the focus of the 2019 annual report.

We are also happy to be able to introduce you to our newly-elected Executive Board, and especially to our new Executive Director, Daniela Trochowski. Also, you will once again learn plenty of interesting and important details about our work.
