Linking self-care to feminist movement building (Integrated Security Workshop)
The main purpose of this meeting is to consider self-care and well-being as the basis of feminist movement formation. The inner pressure lives in our relationship, in our movement, and it's necessary to make it visible and discuss its impact on both our personal lives and our movement. Many activists day by day leave "the platform" since they have no more energy and want to start taking care of themselves, meanwhile if their movement had been formed by taking into consideration the phenomena of self-care and well-being in the community, It wouldn't be necessary to escape from activism to relax. From time to time the fact of threat is witnessing the neglect of above mentioned phenomenas which were formed during the movement.
During this meeting we will examine the problematic points of the topic and will try to rehash our movements by taking into consideration self-care and well-being. We will also discuss how the concepts of health, power and emotions are related to the formation of a stable feminist movement.
