About the conference

  • Facebook

During the conference, we will talk about the agency of what is feminine from the perspective of history and the present day. We want to ask if empowerment in Poland has already been completed, or is there still a long way to go to enable women to be free, responsible and efficiently self-determination? What position on this can be found in contemporary feminist theories? What is empowerment really? Is it just empowerment or is it more than that? We want to capture both the scientific and research perspective as well as the activist perspective, because feminism binds (for sure?) These two orders.
