Getting there

The International SeminarFazendo Gênero 10 - Desafios Atuais dos Feminismo (Doing Gender 10 - Current Challenges of Feminisms) will be held in Florianopolis, Santa Catarina, from September 16 to 20, 2013. The event is organized by the Centro de Filosofia e Ciências Humanas and the Centro de Comunicação e Expressão, and supported by other schools of the Federal University of Santa Catarina (UFSC), in partnership with the Centro de Ciências Humanas e Educação of the State University of Santa Catarina (UDESC).

Fazendo Gênero 10 (Doing Gender 10) seeks to: favor the articulation of gender studies with approaches involving other categories of analysis such as class, race, ethnicity, and generations; create spaces for dialogue and exchange of experiences among researchers, teachers and people involved in social movements; encourage the participation of undergraduate and postgraduate students in the field of feminist studies and gender, providing a more qualified training in the area; and produce knowledge that could result in articles to be published in books and periodicals about the theme.

The general conception of the event arises from the consideration that, despite the many advances made by the numerous struggles waged by women, many obstacles still remain, some  reconfigured, others recently emerging, thus requiring a debate on the Current Challenges of Feminisms. Such challenges include, among others, the little participation of women in positions of political power; gender inequalities in the work environment and income distribution; the difficulties faced in the struggle for abortion rights; domestic and institutional gender violence; the critical situation of women, especially the low-income ones, in post-colonial and trans-modern contexts; health inequities; the backlash in the struggle for LGBT rights and in the effects of the intersections of gender, class, generation and race / ethnicity; gender imbalance in the production of scientific knowledge; the significant inclusion of women in contemporary mobility, and many others.
