Every day, women’s rights organizations fight, educate and inspire – for a more equal world. Their work makes a big difference, both short and long term. On the International Women’s Day, the 8th of March, we pay attention to this long struggle for women’s rights. Welcome to Frilagret in central Gothenburg where you can celebrate together with us - and learn more.

INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY 2018 WITH KVINNA TILL KVINNA AT FRILAGRET:

Open from 6.30 PM

Workshop: Feminist self-defense Gothenburg. Female and transgender people only. 7 PM.

Panel discussion: SUFFOCATING THE MOVEMENT – SHRINKING SPACE FOR WOMEN’S RIGHTS. 7.30 PM.

In Sweden, Europe and in the whole world, reactionary and nationalistic forces want to limit the civic space of women's rights defenders, push us back to traditional gender roles and restrict our control over our own bodies. We can never take women's rights for granted.

Kvinna till kvinna launches a report on the International women's day titled SUFFOCATING THE MOVEMENT, which we will introduce and discuss in the panel.

Performance: Gothenburg feminist choir live on stage! 8.30 PM.

Movie screening. "Women's War", a short documentary by Marika Grieshel on assignment by the Kvinna till Kvinna Foundation, 20 minutes long. 9 PM.

Approximately 20 000 women were raped during the war in Bosnia and Hercegovina in the early 1990s, in the DR Congo it is estimated that between 200 000 and 500 000 women and children have been raped during the 14 years long war. Women’s war shows an exchange initiated by the Kvinna till Kvinna Foundation between women human rights activists from the Balkans and the DR Congo in 2009.

The event will be held in english.

During the night, Kvinna till Kvinna and other organizations working locally and globally with women’s rights issues will inform about their work and how you can contribute.

Food and fika can be purchased at Frilagret.
