Feminists from Asia Pacific, join APWLD members and allies to strengthen our movements, our solidarity and our resolve to dismantle economic, social and political systems that produce obscene levels of inequality, drive climate change and necessitate violations of women’s human rights. The 3rd Asia Pacific Feminist Forum is  a participatory event bringing together activists, women human rights defenders, academics, lawyers,  and global allies. The forum will facilitate the sharing of tools and resources, provide space for advocacy, strengthen capacities and invite us to collectively strategise to build our power in the era of authoritarian, patriarchal, late capitalism.

Globally and in our region, authoritarian, patriarchal rule is ascendant and civil society, feminist space is under increased attack. Yet globalisation is also increasingly questioned and movements that challenge exploitation and inequalities are increasingly visible. This is, therefore, the perfect time to come together and collectively map feminist alternatives to the current political, economic and social order whilst asking ourselves – what power, knowledge, tactics and movement strategies will it take to get us there.
