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.
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.
