The Psychosocial Centre for girls and young women – Die Spinnerei is a non-profit organization from Vienna with the scope to empower girls and young women for their future and give them the possibility for self-determined life paths. We are an interdisciplinary team of 4 people from different working areas (pedagogics, psychology, linguistics) – in this way we can include different approaches in our work and create diversity. Our projects are based on feminist theories, that presume that gender is not a biological category but a social construction with the target of an society in which people are not defined by their gender but that everyone have the same right to individual life decisions.
