conducted by RED
Thursday 25/04/2019 – from 11:00 to 13:00
Self-gynaecology is a method. A method of research and experimentation on our bodies. A method aiming to reappropriate knowledge, skills and language. A method of dialogue and confrontation.
During this workshop we will start from our bodies to redefine human anatomy cleaning up doubts and satisfying curiosities. Thanks to horizontal education, we will learn to look for appropriate materials to answer our questions.
It’s time to befree ourselves from the patriarchal oppressive gynaecology and to rediscover statistics, magic poisons and aphrodisiac unguents!
This workshop is open to all people who have or have had a vagina and to whom is in a process of sex reassignment. People with other kind of genitalia will be asked to respect this space and therefore not take part.
All profits will go to the crowdfunding campaign Into the World: an intersectional feminist project on birth cultures.
We recommend bringing: pens of different colors and a towel.
