‘Feminism is for everybody’ spoken word night

Friday, September 26th 2014, 19:00: ‘Feminism is for everybody’ spoken word night

We welcome you to our spoken word night about feminism! We adopt the definition of ‘feminist topics’ in the broadest way, so feel free to make your performance about anything YOU think is connected to feminism. And about your experience. To us, that can be anything from racism, transphobia, marxist feminism, gender roles, pay gap, rape culture, pride, reproductive rights, global warming, masculinity, transmisogyny, femmephobia, sex work, beauty standards, black feminism, white middle class feminism, body autonomy, feminism and class, men and feminism, overly academic feminism, fat positivity, inclusive spaces, media representation, safe spaces, body positivity, sex positivity, queer feminism, identity politics, Islamophobia, cat calling, hair, women’s and trans only spaces, communicating consent, and anything else you may have spotted through your experiences.

This event is part of a wider monthly series called ‘Feminism is for everybody,’ taking place in Joe’s Garage and other places in Amsterdam.

What to expect? A safe space for people to:

  • talk about feminism and its intersections with racism, classism, transhphobia, homophobia,
  • share experiences related to these forms of oppression
  • explore ways of expression, from casual chats to semi-structured discussions to workshops to poetry to performances to whatever comes up.

By the way, safe space means that if you behave like an asshole, you will be asked to leave.

If you wanna take part in this or you know someone who would be ideal for it, drop me a line at joeworkshops [at] squat [dot] net. You can also contact me for feedback, questions and anything else.
