Join us for an evening of discussions about the importance of caring and loving ourselves.
Self-love and self-care is about the power that resides in us; it is about agency and is therefore a revolutionary act. We must love and cater for ourselves and our well-being before we turn our attention to others. Women have traditionally in the framework of patriarchy neglected their well-being for the sakes of others. And we are aware of the intersections of various power dimensions. This workshop aims to inspire us to look at self-.care and self-love critically, both in theory and practise.
This event is the first informal meeting out of our series of monthly events. These events are limited to only self-identifying women. In these meetings we want create our own narratives that are not necessary academia-focused. These events are inspired by 1970s confessional writings and women-only gatherings, where women shared their stories, expressed solidarity and mobilized as individuals to subvert the patriarchal structures they faced.
Looking forward to seeing you all!
