Online but also in Brussels

On the occasion of International Women's Day on 8 March, RHEA - the Research Centre for Gender, Diversity and Intersectionality - of the Vrije Universiteit Brussel organises its annual Gender Week from 7 to 12 March 2022 together with various partners. This week is filled with events reflecting on gender and diversity in urban space, solidarity with Palestine, the role of women’s participation in art in violent contexts ..... Gender inequality within academia is also an important topic, including workshops on how to recognise implicit bias and improve gender balance during recruitment processes in academia and a bystander workshop for students on how to act against sexual harassment.

The Gender Week still largely takes place online, but also partly in Brussels with the film screening 'Hava, Maryam, Ayesha' at Bozar. This is first independent Afghan film shot in Afghanistan by Afghan director Sahraa Karimi. There is also the colloquium Building feminist cities in the KVS reflecting upon how to build an inclusive city and mobility. The Gender Week ends with the photo exhibition LIJF-elijk ANDERS by photographer and cultural scientist Hilde Braet in het Huis van de Mens.
