WomenBeing

By Lisa Settari

As we know, International Women’s Day (IWD) was once again celebrated on 8 March this year. On this occasion, the WomenBeing collective based in Edinburgh, the capital of Scotland, dedicated four days to its Second International Interdisciplinary Conference on Gender Studies and the Status of Women. The conference took place at Queen Margaret University from 8 – 11 March 2020.

WomenBeing is at the same time a network, a database and an online magazine showcasing global feminist perspectives and research. It brings together feminists from across the globe, provides them with a platform for their ideas and research findings, and with opportunities for networking and exchanges. WomenBeing is active throughout the year (do check out their social media pages, they’re everywhere), but the conferences in 2017 and 2020, are undoubtedly a highlight of its existence.

In times when many museums worldwide are forced to keep their doors shut, we invite you to engage with exhibitions and collections of women’s museums virtually. Every day we will share with you an online exhibition or virtual view into one of our member museums worldwide. Today we start with 5 virtual exhibitions from the Museo de las Mujeres de Costa Rica, which are available in Spanish and English:

EMILIA PRIETO, PRECURSOR OF DISSIDENCE IDENTITY IN COSTA RICA (1925-1945)

Emilia Prieto’s work redefines the position of women in society, valuing dimensions that were closed as their subjectivity, eroticism and femininity. The female body is designated as a space dominated by the male and, at the same time, as a territory of denunciation and resistance. Prieto questions the power structures, gender asymmetries both from the public and from the private, both determining the capacity of women’s personal development.
