Feminisms have become a refuge for many of us, allowing us to create networks and groups where we belong, fight, work and support each other. Migrant women and trans identities have and build, within different feminisms, a crucial place to be identified and differentiated, to be empowered and organized, to fight for rights, develop tools and feel supported in the face of inequality, violence and vulnerability. This encounter’s proposal is to reflect on the relation between feminisms and migrant identities in Argentina, discussing the necessary strategies towards a more just and revolutionary society.
