Warm-up to the 8th of March

Join Centre for Gender Studies at the library at the University of Stavanger on Wednesday 4th of March for a warm-up to 8th of March, the International Women’s/Feminist Day.

Join us for an amazing and inspiring afternoon program where we will have the opportunity to learn more about, discuss and engage in local as well as global feminist struggles. We have invited speakers who will speak from/to/with afrofeminisms, anti-racism, anti-colonialism, trans activism, anti-capitalism and climate activism and more. 

We hope to be able to learn more about each other’s struggles, about how to collaborate and solidarize as well as to get inspired to think and act new critiques and possibilities.
