International Women’s day in Eindhoven Library
March 8 @ 18:00 - 22:00€3
International Women’s Day: Everyone’s a hero!
Heroes: Notable, invisible, dead and alive, big and small ones. We all know them, because in every town or village are -or were- heroes present. Heroes who have committed themselves in an exceptional way, fighting for the rights of women, for equality, for their people.
Friday the 8th of March is International Women’s Day. The library of Eindhoven has, in cooperation with Women Inc’s ambassador Carien Kirkels, created an interesting event for women, with the starting point: Everyone’s a hero! After this evening, full of new encounters, information and inspiration you will definitely feel like a hero yourself!
Ineke Hurkmans, our local hero from Jump Movement, will take care of an unforgettable ‘Jump’. Jump is a simple and accessible conversation method that moves people towards their own or collective ambitions. You’ll be linked to another visitor and you will ‘jump together’. There will be an informal gathering afterwards and a small market where you can get inspired. Jessica Bartels, City Poet of Eindhoven, will be present to present some of her poems and show her poetry skills.
Attention for International Women’s Day is -and remains- important: We will celebrate our acquired rights, but there is still a long way to go when it comes to truly equal treatment. Even in The Netherlands.
Important: This event will be in Dutch, but is also open for non-Dutch speakers. The hand-out of the reading and ‘Jump’ exercises will available in English.
