Apologies for the late W2M feminausts, it’s been a MASSIVE 4 days at the AWID forum in Istanbul. Over the past few days we’ve heard about how economic power is important for transforming (in a positive way) women’s rights and getting us just that bit closer to gender equality. This W2M is attempting to share with you, dear readers, some of the different resources and links we’ve come across during the forum. Please remember not to shoot the messenger but to instead start a conversation or write a blog post for us (firstname.lastname@example.org).
feminaust role models
Jessica Horn is a feminist badass and a founding member of the African Feminist Forum and co-editor of Voice, Power and Soul: Portraits of African Feminists.
Hester Eisenstein is a socialist feminist and US academic who has written a book looking at Australian femocrats. She came up in a conversation we had with Elizabeth Reid, who happens to be the first gender adviser to an Australian Prime Minister (no big deal or anything).
Radhika Balakrishnan is the Executive Director of the Centre for Women’s Global Leadership and took the time out of her lunch break to sit down with the young feminists and give them a macroeconomics 101 lesson!

The kvinna till kvinna foundation
Ok, so we’re now really tired and our brains have ceased to function on the higher levels. IsBambi is heading back to Melbourne tonight while MsElouise has flown over to London to prep for the lead up to her massive cycle ride across the UK starting on Saturday. You can keep up to date with what she’s doing via her cycle blog Fast and Loose 2012 and follow her on twitter. She’s also raising money for the new Young Women’s Leadership Fund that YWCA Victoria is launching so get reading and get donating. Although not before you’ve looked at our Send feminaust to Finland page and made a generous donation there! xxx
