The Feministization of Politics collective (FoP) is a Europe-wide alliance of non-male persons active in different European municipalist movements and organisations working in education and research-action (mainly in Madrid, Belgrad, Naples, Zagreb, Valencia and France). These municipalist actors are grounded on a practice of collaboration and aggregation of different actors at the local level. They aim to transform the institutional structures according to values and purposes such as self-government and local scale autonomy; social rights (or justice); (radical) democracy and participatory procedures; de-commodification of life; feminist, ecological and decolonial principles. Within this context, the FoP collective aims to promote feministization as a precondition for radical democracy, along with ten axes: Empowerment, Diversity, Structures, Resources, Concepts and Use of Language, Cooperation, Proximity to the Community, Equal Representation, Care, Power Relationship.

The first phase of the project took place in 2018-2019 thanks to a #Rethink grant awarded by the participatory fund FundAction. FoP focused on the way the feminisation of politics shapes our movements and organisations: how it is addressed within the movement, the challenges of implementing feminist practices within the organisation and of introducing feminist principles among members, the need to integrate feminist principles into internal structures and organisations, activities of the movements and the policies the movements advocate and implement. At the same time, it analysed, from the own organisations and practices, the correlation between movement’s policies and practices, the efforts on the individual and movements level and of movements’ feministization efforts. Finally, it identified concrete measures to address the theoretical principles. We are currently developing a second phase within the EMN project to deepen the knowledge and further disseminate these tools.
