Although for years feminism was something you might not want to be associated with, it is now widely embraced by many girls and women. However embracing this movement brings a lot of complex questions into life. What does it mean to be a feminist? Can men be feminists? When do you have the right to call yourself one? What consequences does it have for your private and professional life? And how can one cope with inconsistencies in personal experiences or preferences?
These questions are directly related to the third feminist wave which is currently taking place, a movement that is less focused on general rights and more on the individual aspects of what it is to be a feminist. Some even claim we are already living in fourth-wave feminism, a wave that has its (younger) basis online. We can almost say feminism is fashionable. Think of Emma Watson, Beyoncé or Lena Dunham. But what are the consequences for feminism? Is it helping or harming the cause?
Come and talk about your experiences and sources of inspiration. Also, let’s not make feminism a female matter, men are very welcome to participate and share their perspectives too.
