Joined Female* Forces celebrates the strength, intelligence, struggle and beauty of female flavored people in the club scene and beyond. With this event series we want to create an emancipatory space for creative participation and representation.

* Female is not used in a hetero-normative sense but aims at celebrating female power free from the biological or socialized gender. We use it to thematize the not yet reached gender equality. We believe in an inclusive, intersectional feminism, in which everyone feels welcome and recognized. This feminism has a clear take against sexism, trans-, homo- and interphobia, ableism, clacism, racism, antisemitism and islamophobia.

Berlin to us is a place where people can live freely and be inspired by each other in their diversity and socio-political struggles. This motivates us to create a unified feminist night in solidarity with those who grew up and/or still live under all kinds of oppression, such as patriarchy, colonization and the abscense of the freedom of movement and speech.

And when finally thought to have reached safety in the UK, the term “Safety” could not have been further from the truth.
