Ever wondered what feminism really means? Why it is such a bad word? What relevance does it have today? Does gender have any impact on our daily lives? And what is difference between "sex" and "gender"?
Our Workshops provide a safe space to explore these questions and find fulfilling answers.
FEMINISM FOR DADS
What is a feminist dad? And what can feminism offer dads? In this workshop we focus on how to be a good role model, how to counter sexism, and how to be a caring and nurturing man and father.
Workshop feedback shows that dads appreciate the opportunity to learn more about feminism, to share parenting experiences with other well-meaning dads, and also to discuss how to be caring and respectful parents, partners and individuals.
WHAT IS FEMINISM?
What does it mean to be a feminist? Who can be a feminist? And is there a right and wrong way of doing it?
Join us on a unique journey through feminist history as we discuss key moments in literature, art, politics, music, sport, and science to develop our understanding of feminism in this fun, interactive workshop.
We identify different stages and criticisms of feminism and consider intersections with race, LGBTIQ, age, and disability politics. We look for silences and unacknowledged voices, and consider the privileges and biases in our own perspectives.

CUTTING THE BIAS
Success is judged differently for individuals depending on their background. Our values, expectations and perceptions are dependent on stereotypes that are hard to escape. This session involves writing short biographies and analysing contemporary media representations to identify group-established expectations and illuminate individual strengths and weaknesses. The goal is to promote individual and group growth, and recognise unconscious bias.
