“Swedish Anti-Gender Movements”: Hur ser det organiserade HBTQI-motståndet i Sverige och Europa ut?
Pride House, Fri 5 Aug 1:00 PM–1:45 PM
Welcome to a seminar about the growing anti-LGBTQI-movement, together with Ulrika Westerlund (candidate to the parliament for the Greens, formerly president of RFSL and researcher at MUCF), Alice Bah Kuhnke (Member of the European Parliament for Miljöpartiet) and Ingela Holmertz (RFSU). The seminar focuses on the anti-LGBTQI-movements, but also the anti-gender-movements in general - it is the same forces and individuals behind the opponents of LGBTQI rights and abortion rights.
The start of the anti-gender movement is often dated to the aftermath of the UN conference in Cairo on Population and Development in 1994 and the Fourth World Conference on Women, organized by the UN in Beijing, in 1995. As a reaction, conservative actors started using the words "gender agenda” to describe what their opponents wanted to achieve. Since then, the movement, or the ideology, has diversified and spread drastically, adapting to different national and religious contexts, and focusing on different topics, depending on what is deemed achievable and what are the most pressing issues.
The seminar will focus on a report taken forward by Ulrika Westerlund, researcher and formerly president of RFSL, commissioned by MEP Alice Bah Kuhnke (Member of the European Parliament for Miljöpartiet). The report describes the different anti-gender-movements in Sweden, how it influence politics and who is the driving force behind it.
