How we act

The Feminist Space acts on several levels - local, national, regional and global - with this performance being differentiated at each of these levels.

We operate horizontally at the local and state levels, linking women from different areas, identities, contexts and experiences. We learn from each other and strengthen our bonds, discuss and analyze problems from a variety of angles and experiences. We strengthen and act in solidarity, showing that a woman’s problem is not just her own and it affects women everywhere, so we create bonds between women and understand that a woman’s struggle does not only impact her life, but in the lives of many women, and that gives us strength and knowledge to keep fighting.

In a vertical way, going from the local to the global and linking these groups of women, their experiences and knowledge to many others, whether through networks, coalitions and regional and global movements. Thus, we break with invisibility and create important spaces of exchange and solidarity.

At the local level our work is very focused on a community or several communities within the same municipality. At this level, our work has the perspective of focusing on the condition of women's lives, being a more direct action and guided by the principles, guidelines and methodological guidelines. Thus, EF defines where and how it will act and seeks to support groups of local women, giving priority to groups that have already been organized, but giving opportunities for the emergence of new leaders. With the objective of empowering these women, the work developed always respects the role of women at each stage and throughout the process.


At the state level, the work developed by the EF seeks to create links between the different groups and their movements of women and women of the mixed movements, making possible the exchange of knowledge, experiences and practices. Considering that our work links urban and rural, one of our strategies is to always work with urban and rural groups, thus making the relationships between urban and rural within the same municipality, as well as between groups of different municipalities, giving prominence to the various voices, identities and valuing all plurality.


At the national level, the action takes place through partnerships with mixed movements and of women and with networks that work in the same field. Also at the national level, the relationship and action is in the sense of exchanging knowledge and practices, strengthening the actions of groups and jointly and jointly advocating for spaces of social control and improvement in the formulation and monitoring of public policies. We come together to learn, to strengthen ties and experiences, and to share our strategies and experiences.


At the global level we work through our networks and coalitions and seek to strengthen and give visibility to the work done at both the local and territorial level and at the state level. Our focus is to create spaces for discussion in the global arena where global actions are defined, taking the voices of women and also showing the results of the studies, the explanations to some questions from the experiences of women. Again, we use global spaces as a way of sharing experiences and knowledge between organizations from other countries and continents, allowing us to understand these elements in different contexts and cultures. Finally, linking our women's groups to women from all over the world, building solidarity and alliances together we can achieve effective change.
