"Feminist democracy in a Brexit environment - a political dynamic more than hegemony."

 The paper concludes:

"Researchers and activists working together can engage in participatory spaces informed by the private and the public, the local, the European and the global, in collective acts of imagination and agency that move beyond the confines of established notions of democracy. We know that grassroots women's movements can be mobilised and energised in such settings. If we could move forward in this way grass roots movements and feminist academics could be on the brink of creating an activist space for defining and furthering feminist democracy."
