Women’s bodies in the city // We won’t give up!A silent performance to claim the right of women to have their freedom in the city, against harassment and sexism in the public space. One woman each month at 6pm, plain of Plainpalais. Every 14th of the month until June 14, 2022.
Thanks to the survey conducted by Marylène Lieber, we realize to what extent the city is a place where women are still not free, where their bodies are still constrained by fear. How can we inscribe today this feminist fight for women’s bodily integrity in the public space through an artistic and political research/performance? June 14, 2019 was a “historic event” in the history of feminism in Switzerland, according to historian Dominique Dirlewanger. 28 years to the day after the historic strike of 1991, the women’s strike brought together gathered huge crowds throughout Switzerland, with events in all four corners of the country. all over the country. Among the demands, the three areas that were already important in 1991, equal pay, the sharing of domestic work and the bodily integrity of women and the bodily integrity of women, are also found in 2019 and 2021.
