2018 isn’t just a Year of the Women*, it’s also the centenary of women*’s right to vote. This is reason enough for us to organize a symposium on Saturday, 26 May, from 2 to 8 pm. It will examine the history of the women*’s movement. Four lectures focus on the battles surrounding women*’s voting rights, we will talk about women*’s rights to their own bodies, about racism in the 2nd wave of the women*’s movement, and about the current butch/femme debate that was already there in the 1980s among lesbians and feminists.
Our speakers are Gisela Notz, Nello Fragner, Katharina Oguntoye and Lisa Weinberg.
14:00 h: Gisela Notz’s talk
15:30 h: Nello Fragner’s talk
17:00 h: Katharina Oguntoye’s talk
18:30 h: Lisa Weinberg’s talk
The symposium is part of the our own feminismS program.
The Year of the Women* is supported by the Senatsverwaltung für Kultur und Europa (Senate Department for Culture and Europe).
