Clubhouse’s unique value for Muslim women, Interview with leading Russian feminists, Fellowships at International Women’s Forum

Welcome to The Bloom, a global social justice resource!
Enjoy our small seeds of joy with an intersectional feminist lens. 

Dear friends, 

Almost one year ago, I decided to publicly launch The Bloom
๐Ÿ’œ What began as an email to friends and family members craving a positive space online full of meaningful content in human rights, is now growing into a truly global social justice resource with incredible humans from all walks of life.

The newsletter has grown (..quite literally - sorry not sorry for the lengthy mail!!
๐Ÿ˜‚) so much since then, and one of the next steps in its evolution is in the design. In an effort to make the format of this email as inclusive as possible, there will be changes in the coming weeks; do let me know what you think, and if you have any ideas! As with everything Bloom, I'm open to your feedback and suggestions - let's continue working together to make this the best damn resource out there!!! ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿฝ 

with love and light,

Muslim women around the world find solidarity through Clubhouse during Ramadan: For thousands of Muslim women worldwide, congregating in Clubhouse's live audio chat rooms has become a source of spiritual sisterhood and community-building during a second Ramadan marred by the pandemic. Itโ€™s a rare platform through which Muslim women can share their voices. โ†’ Story

International law from a feminist perspective: Considering the many ongoing transnational challenges, the world critically needs a responsive international legal system. There can be no systemic change without legal change; but what would international law look like from a feminist perspective? Hear from leaders in foreign policy and international law. โ†’ Event

How four independent feminist projects in Russia are changing the country: A new wave of feminist activism is spreading across Russia, breaking boundaries both online and off. Four projects in particular are ensuring the feminist movement reaches beyond major cities like Moscow and St.Petersburg, and travels to regions from the Baltic enclave of Kaliningrad to Tatarstan and Buryatia in Siberia. โ†’ Interview
