Befem 2009 - Performers

Johanna Palmström and Moa Elf-Karlén have together written two books in Swedish; the first being a feminist survival guide and the second about everyday fear and sisterhood. In 2008 they published an anthology with texts written by young feminist activists. The starting point of all their books is how to be a feminist in everyday life.

Besides their books they have worked as lecturers on feminism in schools, libraries and trade unions. They are also active in the feminist theatre and think tank Lacrimosa.
