Feminist City Walk

We want more people to get to know the university-town Uppsala from a feminist perpective. We therefore organise feminist city walks for anyone interested. The feminist city tours are free of charge and open for all. 

The purpose of the feminist city walk is to highlight feminist protagonists that have lived and worked in Uppsala, as well as show places that are or have been important to the fight for equality.

Dates 2019:
8 March (Swedish)
19 May (English)
