The movements we create, the feminist spaces we create, the programs and policies we create, should include all women - but they don't.
Count Me In! is a South Asia conference for women who have not been counted in. Count Me In! will bring together for the first time - sex workers, disabled, single, young, HIV-positive, lesbian, and trans women from India, Pakistan, Nepal, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka, to discuss violence against women and strategies of resistance.
In order to create a violence-free world, Count Me In! is working to:
Create more inclusive movements and advocacy processes, by understanding the violence and nature of exclusion faced by marginalised women.
Celebrate different forms of resistance that have worked to reduce violence against marginalised women, through film screenings and outstanding theatre, art, dance and stand-up comedy performances.
Collaborate with marginalised women, women’s movements, and policy-makers to advocate for policies that prevent and end violence against sex workers, lesbians, disabled, single, young and HIV-positive women, and trans people.
From the 16-18th April 2011, join over 300 academicians, activists, performers, artists, donors, filmmakers, researchers and policy makers from South Asia and across the world as we seed dialogues of inclusion. Get counting!
