SheSays Amsterdam | The Rebranding of Feminism

October 31, 2017 @ 20:00 - 21:30

Feminism has been around for decades. Centuries actually, as the word ‘feminism’ first appeared in 1872 in France and the Netherlands. How has the discussion evolved since then? From the word being synonymous with man hating and growing out your armpit hair, to it seeping into mainstream culture with almost 5 million posts on Instagram using #feminism and young girls trotting around in ‘Feminist AF’ or ‘Women are the Future’ t-shirts. What does feminism actually mean today and more importantly: what doesn’t it mean?

Speakers from all walks (TBA) of life will brave the stage to share their point of view on modern-day feminism and how diversity and equality can – and should – benefit companies. From shedding light on a male perspective to bringing ballroom techniques into the boardroom, expect nothing but inspirational stories, unexpected angles and some networking in between. It will be fun. We promise.

Please note:
Free admission but make sure to register through Pakhuis de Zwijger to secure a spot.

We invite anyone and everyone to join us – we may be called SheSays but anyone’s perspective is welcome in this discussion.
