4th International Marxist Feminist Conference 2020 Bilbao, Basque Country

The idea of an international marxist-feminist conference was originally brought into being, and was since then continuously organized, by the feminist section of the Berlin Institute of Critical Theory (Inkrit) around the German sociologist and philosopher Frigga Haug. It was held in Berlin for the first time in 2015, followed by an increasingly international second congress in Vienna in 2016, and the third one in Lund (Sweden) in 2018.

The 4th International Conference will be held in Bilbao (Bizkaia Aretoa), in October (15,16,17) 2020. This Confernce will be organized and funded by Transform!
