This two day event will look at the relationship between the act of writing and feminisms in Quebec and in general. The conferences offered will try to establish links between the publication of magazines and zines, and the current expression of feminism through the web 2.0. There will also be an exhibit on the history of feminist publication, as well as a show featuring humour, music, and slam.
Our objectives are to:
Break the isolation of young feminists by allowing them to meet;
Show the initiatives taken by past generations and recognize them as part of our history;
Publicize a variety of feminist publications, in paper or electronic format;
Allow participants to discover the ways technology can be used to broadcast a messag
The event is organized by a group of feminist students from the women centre at UQAM university in Montreal, Quebec. The majority of the event will be in French; however, we will be able to offer a form of translation in English if one is needed.
