What Is It?
The event is an introductory session on the basics of feminism, and what the word means, as well as the concepts that surround it. Feminism 101 addresses how sexism works against both men and women, and why the concept of gender equality is so vital in today's world. It's also a great way to see how spoken word and writing in general plays into empowering feminism — think of it as an informational session and a workshop of sorts. The event is hosted at Marzipan Cafe by InkWeaver, known for their spoken word and poetry events.
Who Is It For?
The event is open to absolutely anyone with an open mind. Whether you're already a feminist, vaguely familiar with the concept or would just like to learn more, this is an important event to mark out on your calendar.
Why Should I Go For It?
Feminism 101 stresses that the event is for both men and women, as feminism is important in creating equality for both sexes. Plus, they'll be having an open mic, so if you write poetry or spoken word, here's your chance to be heard! If you're a bit mic-shy, it's a good space to go and listen to other people's performances, and an opportunity to meet like-minded individuals!
