看见我(中文女性主题活动)–When I see myself (A feminine discussion in Chinese)

在国际妇女节的第二日,我们来坐在一起,分享自己身为女性的经历与感受。这个活动会由三部分组成。第一个部分是一个简单的科普环节,这个环节我们会从医学、政治学、经济学三个如此重要却常常被我们回避的视角,去理解女性的处境。第二个环节,我们将对话流动进入日常生活,在这里我们期待听到每一位女性自己的声音讲述自己的故事,无论它是骄傲的、悲伤的、愤怒的、迷茫的、羞耻的、幸福的,我们都好期待听到你的故事。第三个环节,我们邀请所有的参与者们共同创作一个手工艺术作品,我们将提供纸张、彩笔、粘土等手工材料,鼓励每一个参与活动的人运用手边的材料去表达自己对女性身份的感受,过程中大家可以展示并分享自己的创作理念,最后,所有作品将集中拼搭在一块板子上成为一份共同创作的作品。

On the second day of International Women’s Day, let’s come together to share our experiences and feelings as women. This event will consist of three parts. The first part is a lecture session where we will, from the perspectives of biomedicine, political science, and economics—three crucial yet often overlooked angles—to understand the situation of women. In the second part, our conversation will transition into our everyday life. Here, we look forward to hearing each participant’s own voice telling her story, whether it be proud, sad, angry, confused, shameful, or happy. We are eager to hear from you. In the third part, we invite all participants to collaboratively create a piece of handicraft. We will provide materials such as paper, colored pens, clay, etc., encouraging everyone to use the available materials to express their feelings about the female identity. Throughout the process, participants can showcase and share their creative ideas. In the end, all the works will be assembled on a board to become a collective piece of artwork.
