Research, innovation and incidence

Research, innovation and incidence work is aimed to analyze social reality from a feminist perspective, developing innovative methodologies for social intervention and formulating political recommendations.

It is oriented towards action, in order to contribute to generate transformations in the political and social scene. From a critical point of view, we try to make visible the invisible and give value to the devalued, in order to show gender iniquities and to influence politically and socially for the effective exercise of women’s rights.

We pay special attention to the intersections of genre with other iniquities, such as class, ethnicity, origin, age or sexual diversity.

We coordinate and participate in international and European projects, and we also address the social reality in Catalonia.
