“There really is a need to position feminist practice at the center of resistance… against authoritarianism, against misogyny, against sexism”
–Tesa De Vela, Executive Director, Women and Gender Institute
“May we all continue to be disruptive, defiant and brave”
–Aurora De Dios, Senior Project Director, Women and Gender Institute
In celebration of Women’s Month, the Women and Gender Institute (WAGI) in partnership with Oxfam sa Pilipinas, held a two-day dialogue entitled, “Spark Talk, Ignite Change! An Inter-movement, Intergenerational, Feminist Interchange” held on March 21-22, 2019 at the MC-Henry Sy, Sr. Innovation Center.
Youth groups, feminist organizations, academics, media practitioners, human rights advocates, community leaders, and LGBT groups were present to talk about feminisms in their everyday lives, in collective action, and in knowledge production.
Luz Martinez, WAGI faculty associate, and Josephine Perez, WAGI external associate from Ateneo De Manila University, used the Art of Hosting, specifically Open Space and World Café, to facilitate the many interesting conversations, questions, and ideas on feminist practice.
