“Feminism for Everyone”
Date: 24th April 2016 14:00-17:00
Venue: Kosaten (Tokyo, Suginami-ku, Zempukuji 4-1-1 Wada Bld. 4F) http://kosaten.org/about/
The word feminism is hard to define. Though the meaning of feminism is mercurial it is an essential part of our lives. As such, we plan to host a series of discussions surrounding the word feminism and specific topics that relate to feminism. The goal is to make feminism accessible and understandable for everyone, no matter what your age, gender, sexuality, occupation or background may happen to be. All our welcome to join us on this journey. This event will take place regularly every month and will be conducted bilingually in English and Japanese.
This month we’ll begin with a dialogue upon each individual’s interpretation of “feminism”. Exploring how feminism can be different things at many different times to different people. Touching on key examples of personal and societal understandings of feminism, through activities and discussion, participants will have the chance to reflect on their own idea of feminism. The goal is not to define feminism, but rather to consider how it is necessitated and played out in the everyday lives of each participant.
