This guide is an introduction to a process created in order to introduce the concept of Feministisation of politics within a group, collectivity, community and provide a common frame for the identification of each organization’s needs and weaknesses in this area.
This work is done in collaboration with the Feministisation of Politics collective, a Europe-wide alliance of non-male persons active in different European municipalist movements and organisations, whose aim is to transform the governance of political processes according to feminist values.
In particular, the guide is a further development of the feminist self-assessment created by the Collective at the beginning of its work and embedded in the first report of the collective.
Here, the same questions and issues are presented in a new format, easier to use in the framework of organisations that want to reflect on themselves, with or without the help of sister/allied organisations.
The process developed proposes a sequence of questions, activities and tools with the aim of helping to visualise and self-diagnose the situation in one’s own social and political paths with respect to the Feministisation of politics.
The guide is conceived as a questionnaire, where the participants use questions and reflect about the issues they need to act, confronting each other about the ways the Feministisation of politics takes place or is missing in their organization.
