IWS is a feminist, anti-racist political group in Berlin with migrant and refugee women and non-migrant women as members. We fight patriarchy and document everyday violence, racism, sexism, and all kinds of discrimination.
We will invite Jennifer and Lavender from IWS for the book reading. After, we will introduce the Corona Lager Report that they are initiating, collecting voices of refugee women* during Corona time. As we are facing the second lockdown, we would like to discuss this topic further. Hope to see many of you. Please join us online!

CORONA LAGER REPORTS

https://iwspace.de/lager-reports

Book Description
IN OUR OWN WORDS documents the lives and stories of women who have fought difficult realities. The book contains texts by and about women and includes testimonials of refugee women in Germany. We approached the project in the Latin American tradition of testimonial literature – looking to amplify the voices of communities that, all too often, go unheard. We are sure it will inspire us all in the struggle for emancipation.

WE EXIST, WE ARE HERE contains eight stories, at times enraging and dispiriting, at times empowering and uplifting. The stories recount women’s experiences of being trafficked through Libya and forced into prostitution; of fleeing state repression and societal oppression in Egypt, Syria and Iran; of being persecuted for academic activism in Turkey, or for drug addiction in Russia; women robbed of their right to self-determination; women who have resisted deportation, and who fight racism and racist structures in Germany every day.

The event is finished.
