We live in a strange moment in the history of gender oppression.
Same-sex marriage is becoming legal in more and more countries, while restrictions on abortion and women’s reproductive autonomy are getting worse. Transgender people have become more visible than ever in the mass media, yet gender does not seem to be any less entrenched as a system of
domination in daily life. Why are all things gay and even transgender “trending”, while feminism continues to be marginalized? Could the logic of “diversity” and “inclusion,” particularly when applied to gay and transgender people in the global north, actually reinforce a repressive neoliberal agenda? How do radical queer/feminist concepts like sex positivity, polyamory, and challenging the gender binary relate to
neoliberal capitalism? And most importantly, what does collective resistance to gender oppression look like in the era of gay marriage and trans celebrities? Join a queer anarchist and feminist from the USA for provocative reflections on the politics of gender and sexuality today.

cafém in February: what do we do girls? shout out loud!

some people love songs of the labour movement. they cherish them, learn their lyrics by heart, they recite them perfervidly. why doesn’t anything like that happen to feminist songs? are there any women songs? trans songs? lesbian songs? feminist movements, womanism and pop culture did indeed create some powerful, solidary, impressive songs. which ones have been and/or are important to you and what can why do with them now?
bring hits and insider’s tips on sound carriers (live performances are very welcome, as well^^)

next to that, we’ll have the usual vegan buffet (feel free to bring something, too), coffee, tea, a play area, lots of zines and books as well as time and space to chat, hang around and chill.

cafém – getting to know feminism: 3-8pm
listening to, playing, re_discovering, singing, performing,… feminist songs: 4pm

Against sexualised violence and racism. Always. Anywhere. #ausnahmslos (“noexcuses”)

We also support this text Against sexualised violence and racism. Always. Anywhere. #ausnahmslos (“noexcuses”):

On the night of New Year’s Eve, numerous women were sexually attacked in public spaces in Cologne and other German cities.. These crimes demand thorough and comprehensive investigations. The prevailing impunity regarding crimes of sexualised violence must end.

We demand that the survivors receive the best possible care and support. We are in solidarity with those who have experienced sexualised violence and harassment.
