L’Argu­ment de Rouen 2018 : Think / build emanci­pa­tion.  The emerging question of gender in museums

This multidisciplinary meeting, open to all, will be held in the framework of “L’Argument de Rouen”. It invites the public to question the ability of museums to be in touch with the societal challenges of our time.

The theme for L’Argument 2018 is :
“Think / build emancipation. The emerging question of gender in museums”.

The National Women’s History Exhibition Hall (NWHEH) is the only museum under the Ministry of Gender Equality & Family. This is one of the important achievements of the Korean women’s movement. It opened on December 9, 2002 in the Women’s Plaza in Daebang-dong, Seoul with the aim to shed light on the role of women in Korean history. The Ministry of Gender Equality & Family wanted to use it as a space for gender equality education, but the Ministry did not have a long-term plan for the Korean women’s history museum. According to the contract between Seoul city and the government, the NWHEH had leased the space in the Women’s Plaza for free for 10 years. Continue reading

The Iranian lawyer Nasrin Sotoudeh has been arrested after she questioned the Iranian judiciary. She is one of the best-known human rights defenders in Iran.

Today we join to demand the liberation of Nasrin together. That’s how it’s done:

  • Write 1-2 sentences to Nasrin and add the hashtag #FREENASRIN. The common hashtag is the most important thing!
  • We all post it on the SAME DAY, WEDNESDAY, at the SAME TIME, 20.30 in Iran18.00 in Brussel, 17.00 London, 12. p.m. North America (Est: 12.00, Gst: 11.00 a.m. & Pst: 9.00 a.m.) 

Last Wednesday, her husband wrote on Facebook that Nasrin Sotoudeh was arrested and sent to Tehran’s Evin Prison. He wrote “Of all the functions that governments of the world are expected to do, the Iranian one is only good in arresting and imprisoning innocent people.” Nasrin Sotoudeh was arrested without an official warrant, because she supported young women in their protest against the hijab.

On 16th of June 2018 Norway was celebrating the 40th anniversary of the legalisation of abortion. The event took place in front of the Parliament, Oslo. Speaches were made by pioneers from the political struggle 40 years ago, and by women working for women’s rights to decide about their own bodies in today’s society – both inside Norway and internationally.

The Kvinnemuseet in Kongvinger, Norway was participating in the celebrations.
