Location: Copenhagen
Session 1

This course is a tour de force through the exciting history of feminist activism in Denmark: From the women’s movement in the 1960’s to the blossoming feminist activism today around consent law, climate justice, anti-racist art, etc. What were – and are – the main questions for Danish feminists and what roles do questions of gender, class, race, and sexuality play, for all genders? We focus on cases of Danish feminist activism, visit important sites, and engage with Danes who do and think about feminist activism today and in the past. Firsthand experiences in and around Copenhagen will provide understanding of the complex political and social issues feminist activists engage with.
