School of Feminism – La Rioja media

The City Council of Calahorra, through the Department of Equality, has designed a new project called “School of feminism” consisting of 10 meetings on various topics related to feminism and that are open to all citizens of Calahorra.

These 10 meetings will take place between April 27 and August 3, always on Wednesday and at the Youth Center (Calle Julio Longinos 2).

This initiative seeks to raise awareness among the population about inequality between women and men in a dynamic format of debate and exchange on different issues related to equality with equality between women and men.

Each topic will be presented by an expert on the subject who will guide the analysis and energize the debates so that all voices can be heard.

The talks will be aimed at people over 12 years of age with concerns about the analysis of inequality between women and men in our society.

The sessions between April and May will take place at 6:00 p.m. and those held in July and August will be held at 11:00 a.m.

The planned talks are as follows:

Wednesday, April 27, 6:00 p.m.: Brief history of feminism. What is happening today?

On the occasion of the International Day of Action for Women’s Health (May 28) we will focus the debate on health with a gender perspective.

The massive expansion of pornography in our society, as well as the hypersexualization of a large part of cultural and industrial production, has led to the normalization of its consumption by boys and girls at very early stages. Are we aware of its risks and extension?

Nightlife and party spaces occupy an important part of our lives in adolescence and youth, especially but does it offer the same opportunities for fun to men and women? And the same risks?

There are more and more men who approach feminism as an egalitarian movement, but for equality to be a fact, men must learn to reject the stereotypes associated with masculinity that harm women and men themselves. What are these new models of egalitarian masculinities and how are they achieved?

The myths of romantic love have built an idealized and harmful model of relating as a couple, which takes certain statements to be true regarding how relationships should be or what we have to expect and feel towards the other person. How are these myths related to the relationship? gender violence? Do we know how to recognize and combat them?
