Raising Awareness and Educating About Women’s Issues Online

Creating a change in our society is strongly dependent on our understanding of the current situation. If we recognise that something is wrong, but we don’t know why or how it came to be, we cannot initiate positive change. Education is the best form of empowerment.

That is why, in the beginning of 2020, Kristina Hemzacek started a project called FemEd – Feminist Education in the Croatian Context, which is intended as a knowledge base of articles on feminism and the women’s movement globally and locally (to Croatia, but also other countries from former Yugoslavia). As part of this project she writes about the history of the women’s movement, different approaches to feminism, and how acknowledging women can have a positive influence on our production of knowledge.
