Motives of this year’s BeFem are depicted by waves – past and future ones. We’ll unpack the heritage of the past struggles, in order to prepare ourselves for the future ones. We’ll start introspectively, asking ourselves who, where, when and how has a right to feminism, and we’ll end up… who knows where!
We’ll talk to women football players, goat keepers, divas of the dance floor, politicians, theoreticians, femmes fatales, artists and all other identities you bring along.
We all fight inequality uncompromisingly and revolutionary. There is no stable ground, so bring along your surfboards that will help you cut through the waves of patriarchate and all its side-effects, of capitalist exploitation of labour and body, fascistization of political and other social practices.
We’ll focus our discussion on the refugee crisis, labour discrimination, surrogate motherhood, and feminist political parties. We’ll strengthen regional, international and intergenerational networking strategies. We’ll listen to each other, laugh and stir waves!
