PODCAST: Womyn’s Gathering 2016

womyn's gathering 2016

This week, 300 women have gathered for a five-day long feminist meeting in an “eco-domain” in Normandy, France. The will discuss topics like heterosexuality, lesbianism, anti-racism, ecofemism, and more. There will also be open mic nights and parties as a goal of the week is not only to further feminist analysis, but “rediscover the joy and freedom found in women-only space and to re-energize.”

I spoke with two of the organizers, Catherine Weiss and Anne B, to learn more about Womyn’s Gathering 2016 over the phone from France.

        It is. Well, it was. I have been at the first three days, no more due problems with my job 🙁
        The part criticizing how society enforces PIV and heterosexuality on women was truly wonderful.

    Wish I could’ve been there – was there any talk of this becoming an annual event? I feel we need something especially now Mich Fest is not continuing. Sounds great!
