Celebrating Femininity: Women’s Festival 女人節 2019 celebrates all things women by showcasing a meticulously curated selection of programs that span music, film, spirituality and health. Co-organized by Eaton HK, Sally Coco, and Reel Women Hong Kong, the theme for this year’s Women’s Festival is “self-love, self-care, and self-expression”, which will be presented through workshops, talks and exhibitions that are at once raw and honest, with a sprinkle of attitude and edge. Local talents and advocates as well as renowned artists will all be featured.
“Our festival seeks to explore women’s often subjugated position in the social, political and domestic spheres, the choices available to them, and how they negotiate with the conditions and situations, especially in relation to their body and sexuality,” says the event organizers. “Our festival program aims to start discussions on various themes and issues through the lives, experience, and perspectives of women, and promote gender awareness and equality in society, to assist participants enjoy and appreciate womanhood by exploring a range of medium and art forms, and to help incorporate both sex-positivism and art into their daily life.”
