Femini Magazine is a platform passionately run by young women, with the aim of showcasing the real-life stories of women from around the world. The platform has published many stories from female activists, successful female entrepreneurs and women wishing to draw attention to cultural struggles which they have faced.
To celebrate two years since Femini Magazine was founded, we’re launching Femini Festival ’18.
Friday 6th July – 6pm start – Tickets available HERE
The event will start with a Q&A panel, “Intersectionality: the rest or just the West?”, which will unite women from all different walks of life to discuss just how positive feminist efforts of today genuinely are.
We’ll talk about whether Western feminism does enough to help women in war-torn, deprived countries and what routes are open to us as a society to engage others in women’s rights.
We’re delighted to be hosting the following speakers:
- Nimco Ali, activist and co-founder of Daughters of Eve, a UK-based non profit organisation that works to protect girls and young women who are at risk from FGM
- Ella Whelan, author of “Women Women Want: Fun, Freedom and an End To Feminism”
- Lucy Moon, YouTuber, digital creator, blogger and podcast co-host
- Katie Allen, the Senior Programme Funding and Partnerships Manager at Women for Women International. As part of her role she has travelled to many different programmes in different countries to help women, including the Democratic Republic of Congo, Nigeria, and Iraq.
We will then be hosting a launch party for Issue Four of Femini Magazine Issue Four in print after the event, where there will be live music, film screenings and a bar available. This will be a great opportunity to meet with other activists and creatives attending.
Our film screenings include: “Tough”, a BAFTA Nominated Animated Short Film from Jennifer Zheng and “She Grows No Moss” from Ella Pearson.
Doors will open at 18:30 for the panel event and we would appreciate those attending to turn up before 18:50 to avoid interruption.
Limited tickets for the panel event will also include admission to the launch party. Doors will re-open after the panel event at 20:00 for those wishing to only attend the launch party.
Those attending the after-party must be 18+. For anybody who requires special arrangements for access, please feel free to e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
10% of ticket sales will also be supporting Women for Women International – UK.
