Breaking the Waves: Cardiff Feminist Festival

Teaser Image: 

“Breaking the Waves” is a grassroots, non-profit, innovative festival exploring diverse expressions of feminism through a vibrant weekend-long programme of events in Cardiff, including speakers, arts, music, discussions, and loads more!

The festival will take place in March 2011 as part of celebrations for the 100th anniversary of International Women's Day. It will be open to all and will stimulate intergenerational dialogue between all who are, or have been, working towards gender equality.

With an ethos of empowerment, inclusion and innovation, we hope to break down perceived or real generational divides, build supportive networks for future anti-sexist work in Cardiff, and ultimately seek new ways of defining what it means to be a feminist today.

Feminist Activist Forum

The Feminist Activist Forum was set up in April 2007 by a bunch of people tired of being caught within a web of misrepresentation about what feminism is, and what feminism does. We want to challenge the claims of academia and the mass media that contemporary feminist activism does not exist, or that post-feminist stereotypes capture the collective imagination. We want a vibrant UK wide intergenerational feminist network to move forward with feminist activism today.
