What is the Asia Pacific Feminist Forum? 

APFF, convened every three year, is a space for feminist and women’s movements to celebrate collective achievements, reflect on challenges and political climates, deepen feminist knowledge and analysis, strengthen feminist sisterhood, solidarity and collaboration to advance women’s rights and Development Justice.  It is a participatory event bringing together activists, women human rights defenders, academics, lawyers and global allies.  Feminists from Asia and the Pacific are invited to join APWLD members and allies in Chiang Mai, to strengthen our movements, our solidarity and our resolve to dismantle economic, social and political systems that produce obscene levels of inequality, drive climate and debt crises as well as violations of women’s human rights. The Forum will facilitate the sharing of tools and resources, provide space for solidarity actions and collectively strategise to build feminist movements’ power and solidarity.
