Welcome to this new site! It has taken us a whole year to conceptualize, program and get this project online, so now we are happy to announce the launch of Grassroots Feminism: Transnational archives, resources and communities!

Grassroots Feminism takes as its starting point the belief that today’s grassroots feminist cultural production and practices are worthwhile and need to be documented. By providing an interactive network portal and research platform, the goal is to make the work and activism of transnational feminists more accessible, as well as to establish a “living history” archive. Working towards the recognition and renewal of the contemporary feminist movement, the aims of the web site are:
- to archive activities of the grassroots feminist movement worldwide (be it cultural, activist or political)
- to provide and share information and resources on feminist practice and theory
- to offer possibilities for exchange, networking and interaction so we can connect across borders and re-envision feminist politics
- to encourage the participation and acknowledgement of young feminists

Its overall vision is to establish a lively network of grassroots feminists throughout the world.

You can log in, list your own projects, search for projects, resources, interviews and access various archives we are about to establish, namely Ladyfest, zine, music, grassroots media archives – with your help and input! Please let us know what you think!

The site is organized and maintained by me, Elke Zobl from Salzburg, Austria, in collaboration with Red Chidgey, England. Work on this web site has been supported by a research grant from the Austrian Science Fund.

Thanks for your visit, add your project and become part of this transnational grassroots feminist community!

Please let us know if you have questions, ideas, suggestions,... we welcome your feedback very much!

Elke and Red

fantastic website!

I met Serena the other day at the Ladyfest Ten meeting and she told me about this website...its brilliant! I especially like the huge amount of resources...I'm going to be kept busy reading for a long time! I'm new to it all really, but I'm really keen to learn more about zines, riot grrrl and ladyfest as well as have a place to discuss feminism any time, rather than get agitated about it alone!

Hi Marta and

I've just discovered this site and want to thank you because the idea of creating a transnational archive is so cool. I can't wait to see this community growing and will try to contribute as much as possible.
All the best!
