Sisters! We are the daughters of all the women who lived before us; women who worked and dared and fought for our children, our bodies, our planet, ourselves. We are the grand-daughters of the suffragettes who marched to give us visibility and the right to vote. And at the same time, we are also the descendants of the witches they could not burn.

This amazing legacy is an inseparable part of us, and challenges us to keep fighting for women’s and girls’ rights today everywhere in the world. Come together to share experiences and talk about who we are as women, our she-roes(vs. heroes), our individual her-stories and our common her-story (vs. histories and history). Let’s reflect on what is patriarchy, how we can fight injustice and violence, how we can contribute towards making a better global society where pay disparity, discrimination against refugees, racism, classism, religious prejudice, environmental destruction will become a thing of the past. No topic is taboo. All are welcome.

This friendly, inclusive, safe workshop will invite participants to reflect, write, speak and converse. Aiming to explore what each of us defines as feminism, this individual and collective discussion moderated by our facilitators wishes to foster a productive, tolerant, open-minded conversation. The participants will be provided with a number of materials that they can use as an inspiration, such as images, objects, texts, slogans, poetry, art, etc.

You are welcome to also bring a special object, text, or visual item that you wish to discuss about and share its story and your related herstory with the other participants. The workshop encourages intersectional collaboration across different groups in society regardless of age, status, background, sexual orientation, etc.
