The circumstances of the COVID-19 pandemic have disrupted the striving of women and LGBTIQ+ activists worldwide. The Global Feminist Pitch will give eight feminists the opportunity to implement their project ideas on the theme of "Feminist Resilience and Resistance on Social Media”.
The feminists will have five months to create a platform on social media channels of their choice and connect, show solidarity and mobilize (with) other feminists.
The feminists will take up the specific challenges, contexts and experiences of their own generation in the COVID-19 pandemic, integrate them into a global debate and make them visible - through podcasts, videos, blogs, or other forms of content on social media channels.
