Generations of Feminist Movement in the Netherlands
with Anja Meulenbelt, Nancy Jouwe, Mercedes Zandwijken and Iris van der Tuin

How do feminists today relate to the earlier feminist movements of the 70s, 80s, 90s and the 00s? Is there really a disconnection between feminist generations? And if yes, how do we overcome it?

In this event, we bring together feminists of different ages, movements, generations and moments to explore the histories of feminisms in the Netherlands. Our speakers will share their experiences in feminist movements and their (dis)connections. This is an evening to discuss, exchange ideas and build alliances.

Anja Meulenbelt has been active in the Dutch feminist scene since the 1970s as an activist, writer, teacher and politician. She has published more than 40 books, of which the most well known is her 1976 memoir "The Shame is Over," a taboo breaking account on how feminism changed her life. Since 1995 Anja Meulenbelt has been working in Gaza as director of the Kifaia foundation, which supports an organization for disabled people. She regularly blogs at

Nancy Jouwe is a publicist, organizer and activist in the fields of gender & ethnicity, postcolonialism, arts, culture and human rights. She is one of the editors of Caleidoscopic Visions (2001), a book which adresses the histories and trajectories of the black, migrant and refugee women's movement in the Netherlands. The book introduced intersectionality within a Dutch context. Currently, Nancy Jouwe is director of Kosmopolis Utrecht, a multimedia platform for art and culture, that focuses on the development and strengthening of intercultural connections on local and national levels, as well as a lecturer at SIT, Amsterdam.

Mercedes Zandwijken is an organizer and activist who works on strengthening social cohesion, civic participation, developing networks and inter-ethnic relations. She is the initiator of the Keti Koti Dialoog Tafel, a ceremony to commemorate the history of slavery through sharing a reconstructing slave meal and participating in symbolic acts of remembrance. Mercedes Zandwijken is currently active in the Committee 21 Maart, organizing a national demonstration against racism.

Iris van der Tuin is assistant professor of gender studies and philosophy of science at Utrecht University. Her academic work is on third-wave feminist epistemologies, and she won an NWO Veni grant for a project entitled "The Material Turn in the Humanities". With the concept 'jumping generations', she theorized about how contemporary feminists relate to the canon of feminist scholarship. As a feminist in academia, Iris van der Tuin's contribution is mostly in the field of feminist philosophy.
