ANYTHING IS DANGEROUS … WHILE A WOMAN
ONLINE EPIDEMIC OF VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN
… to generations of terrified men hiding behind screens!
I found this video this morning as I ‘surfed’ through my Facebook feed.
This weekend I watched the ‘Michael Moore in Trumpland‘ movie.
It’s interesting to me how the message that Agnes Török ties in with Moore’s movie and the fact that there’s the first woman nominee for President of the United States.
Please, listen to her.
Her message is amazing!
Agnes Török is a multilingual award-winning spoken word poet, author and workshop leader. Török has been featured as a TED speaker, regularly collaborated with the BBC and featured at multiple international festivals for arts and sciences.
She has performed on four continents, writing and performing poetry about intersectional feminism, economic equality and the politics of mental health.
The Dangerous Women Project is an initiative of the Institute for Advanced Studies in the Humanities at the University of Edinburgh.
The Project asks: what does it mean to be a ‘dangerous woman’?
The idea that women are dangerous individually or collectively permeates many historical periods, cultures and areas of contemporary life (despite, and in some instances in response to, explicitly feminist movements).
We may take lightly the label attached by mainstream media outlets to women such as Shami Chakrabarti of Liberty, or Scotland’s First Minister Nicola Sturgeon as being ‘the most dangerous woman in the UK’.
But behind this label lies a serious set of questions about the dynamics, conflicts, identities and power relations with which women live today.
The Dangerous Women Project will curate 365 responses to those questions from all over the world between International Women’s Day 2016 and International Women’s Day 2017.
