Do you feel pressured to be ‘feminine’ or ‘masculine’? Do you or your friends get harassed on the street for wearing a skirt? Are you sick of being judged by what’s between your legs rather than what’s in your head? Not sure how to respond to the sexist comments you hear around you? If you feel like we still have a long way to go before all genders are equal – STRIKE BACK WITH THE F-WORD!
Feminism is back! And we are celebrating it this September in Amsterdam with the Fantastic Feminist Festival: The F-WORD fest.
Our aim is to approach feminism from a broad, inclusive and intersectional perspective. The festival is packed with a variety of workshops and discussions on equality, feminism, anti-sexism, queer and gender politics. There will also be a movgie program and two nights of party with live bands and DJs. We want to create a welcoming atmosphere for all, regardless of gender, race, age, ability, sexuality or the amount of feminist scene points! We hope the festival will act as a catalyst for people to get more involved with feminist issues. It´s a great place to meet people, get involved, have fun and fill your brain with new ideas. The F-Word has something for everyone, so come join us!
All workshops are FREE
The F Word aims to be a safer space for everyone. This basically means we´re trying to create an environment that encourages open-mindedness, respect, a willingness to learn from others, as well as physical and mental safety. Racist, ageist, sexist, heterosexist, transphobic, ablebodiest, classist, sizist, or any other oppressive behavior or language is not going to be tolerated.
Our full safe(r) space policy explanation will soon be online.
We will have a kids space open the whole time of the festival. Contact us if you are coming with kids so that we can estimate how many kids, what age, etc we will have to arrange space for!
