Today’s technological progress, economic turbulences, and the environmental crisis are changing social relations and spreading uncertainty. How do female activists from Central and Southeastern Europe view the changes happening in society today? How have they adjusted their actions, and what innovations have made it into their work? How do they communicate and how do they define their priorities and fight for their goals at a time of growing populism and weakening democratic mechanisms?
