Young Feminist Weekend 2019

Een weekend om jonge feministen in Nederland te versterken

In oktober vond een geslaagde eerste editie plaats van het Young Feminist Weekend (YFW). 28 jonge vrouwen namen deel aan dit nieuwe initiatief van de Nederlandse Vrouwen Raad, dat zich richt op het versterken van de jonge feministische beweging in Nederland.

Van weekend naar netwerk
Op de Algemene Ledenvergadering van 23 november gaven Iris van Urk en Joan Biekman - namens de deelnemers van Young Feminist Weekend - een enthousiaste presentatie over het weekend en de ambities om van weekend naar netwerk te gaan. Een netwerk, waarin de jonge feministen samen met de Nederlandse Vrouwen Raad zich blijven richten op het versterken van de jonge feministische beweging in Nederland, en de feministische agenda van de toekomst. In januari heeft het bestuur van de NVR een afspraak met de deelnemers van YFW om hier verder invulling aan te geven. Wordt vervolgd.

De ervaringen van deelnemers Young Feminist Weekend 2019


“The weekend to me was a way to connect with other feminists and learn from each other's experiences in activism, feminist issues and ways of dealing with them. The weekend has inspired me to do more and that my activism can be as small and as big as I want it to be. It also helped me become a part of a more national feminist network.Renate Adriaansens


 “It was a great weekend together with fellow feminists, sharing experiences and expertise, working on future projects and discussing change in the Netherlands.”  Floor van Schagen


“YFW made me feel in sorority. The connections and goals of all participants make you see that we can be all united. Hope to be part of next YFW as participant or helping to organize.” Juliana Bosch


“The YFW2019 was one of the most inspiring get-togethers. I've had in a long time. I loved exchanging thoughts, ideas and experiences with this group of superwomen, all trainblazers in their own personal or professional way.Ankie Petersen


“I met so many young women, looking at them and their work, I was amazed. I am more inspired and I received an energy from them to make my life meaningful. YFW was fruitful and meaningful in terms of networking and boosting your career.Sangita Khadka


An amazing experience that gave me a community of women that are just as passionate as me, and inspire me to do more.”  Jitske Grift

“Participating in the first edition of the Young Feminist Weekend NL has been truly inspiring and empowering. We discussed important topics such as gender equality, female leadership, intersexuality and men in feminism but also shared ideas, insecurities, plans and ambitions.  It was amazing to be surrounded by so many like-minded and strong women and hear their stories. I'm very grateful for this experience and the inspiration it has given me.” Nathalie Sanglier

Coming together as women from al different backgrounds and leaving with the same strong feeling, is what I think one of the most beautiful things I kept from this weekend.”  Lissane van ‘t Riet
