Description

Join us for a thought-provoking discussion on intersectional feminism on the International's Women Day

Intersectional feminism is much more than the latest feminist buzzword. It is a decades-old term many feminists use to explain how the feminist movement can be more diverse and inclusive.

As we celebrate the International Women’s Day on March 8, this event will be a thought-provoking and engaging community driven workshop on intersectional feminism. The workshop will unpack the concepts of identity, intersectionality and feminism through a historical, political, and social lenses. Through case studies on marginalised women in Hong Kong, the workshop will challenge participants to explore and analyze their internal biases and identities and examine how we all can be more inclusive and intersectional in our daily life.

IWD 2021 campaign theme: #ChooseToChallenge
A challenged world is an alert world.
Individually, we're all responsible for our own thoughts and actions - all day, every day.
We can choose to challenge and call out gender bias and inequity. We can choose to seek out and celebrate women's achievements.
Collectively, we can all help create an inclusive world.
From challenge comes change, so let's all choose to challenge.
