WoWmen! 2018
WoWmen! 2018

‘My own definition of a feminist is a man or a woman who says, ‘Yes, there’s a problem with gender as it is today and we must fix it, we must do better.’ All of us, women and men, must do better.’ Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie (We should all be feminists)

2017 was an eventful year for feminism. It began with mass demonstrations – the Women’s Marches – that one might have hoped were no longer necessary, and ended with the powerful #MeToo movement and the polarization to which it led. During the third edition of WoWmen! – in the week of International Women’s Day – Adichie’s words will be a beacon and leitmotif: feminism is the abolition of a dualistic society. This idea will come to the fore in conversations and debates – about #WeToo and ecofeminism, mansplaining and intersectionality – and performances that bring ambiguous identities to the stage.

A Kaaitheater festival, together with deBuren, RoSa, VUB & Waerbeke.
