Sarajevo Open Centre, in partnership with Friedrich Ebert Foundation, in March of this year, before the International Women’s Day, starts a new round of lectures and feminist discussions Somebody said feminism?
Leitmotif of this round will be policitics – politics that create women’s magazines, female politicians in positions of power, biopolitics of the women’s bodies, representation of female eros in the popular and folk music, virtual space, representation of female sexuality in contemporary post-Yugoslav film, the relationship between market and women’s work, and the attitude toward women in the monotheistic religions.
