In the context of International Women's Day on 8 March, Neimënster will screen the filmed version of the play 'Learning feminism from Rwanda'.
After the 1994 genocide in Rwanda, the country has made gender equality an absolute priority. Hence, 'Learning feminism from Rwanda' questions quotas as a political instrument to initiate a rethinking. How does the way a state approaches women’s rights reflect its evolution? And what do the statistics say about reality?
The play will be preceded by a conference on feminism on all continents with speakers from all over the world.The conference and the play can also be streamed online.
