FEMglocal – Glocal feminist movements: interactions and contradictions

The project FEMglocal – Glocal feminist movements: interactions and contradictions, funded by the FCT, is promoted by the Centre for Research in Applied Communication, Culture, and New Technologies (CICANT), in partnership with CIEG/ISCSP-ULisboa.

Considering the interactions and contradictions between global and local activism, within digital communication in the national contexts, the project aims to map feminist activist movements in Portugal, studying their history, their life flows, their internal and external communication dynamics. It intends to contribute to recover the historical memory of social invisibility of feminist movements in Portugal, focusing on social mobilisation, communication and media visibility strategies.

CIEG’s researchers Manuela Tavares e Maria João Cunha are members of the research team.
