SOMEBODY SAID FEMINISM?
Sarajevo Open Centre and the Friedrich Ebert Foundation in Bosnia and Herzegovina will organize 6 lectures in 2016, which will cover the following topics: Antifascist Women’s Front Archive BiH, ideology and language, challenges facing feminism today, feminist critique of political economy, the relationship between religion and feminism and reproductive rights.
27 April 2016 (Wednesday) 6 P.M.
Topic: What are we saying when we say the F-word?
Lecturer: Adriana Zaharijević
Place: Museum of Literature and Performing Arts Sarajevo
This lecture will reflect on feminist developments in the region over the last few years – since the book Somebody said Feminism? How Feminism Affected the Women of 21st Century was published. Important, but also somewhat controversial questions on feminism will be discussed – questions that might not have been very relevant to our lives until recently.
