"What's So Bad About the F-Word?"

femTALK, Monica Miller & Katie Loughmiller

 

Feminist is a loaded word. It often elicits negative reactions that span from an eye roll to extreme and open disdain. These reactions are expected from close-minded Trump supporters, but why is it that those who are philosophically in support of feminist principles are often just repulsed by this word? What is so bad about the "F-word" and how can we reclaim, rename, or redefine the term feminist?

 

​*This discussion includes a potluck, if you are able, please bring a dish to share with the group.​

 

Presented by femTALK, an assembly of individuals who identify as females created out of a request for support from other female artists that associate with an art world primarily dominated by white males.

 


This workshop is presented as part of Riverwest FemFest. Woodland Pattern will host one other FemFest workshop - Finding and Reviving Vintage Clothing - on Saturday, January 21 from 3-4:30 PM. 

FemFest is an annual festival and fundraiser in the Riverwest community in Milwaukee, WI, celebrating talented and strong women, femmes, and feminine identifying groups though music, visual and performance art and poetry.
