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 to learn more about Womyn’s Gathering 2016 over the phone from France.
