Am­pli­fy­ing voices

Siegessaeule - - An English Round Up -

> The In­ter­na­tio­nal Wo­men’s Space (IWS) was foun­ded in 2013 in the re­fu­gee-oc­cu­p­ied school buil­ding on Rei­chen­ber­ger Stra­ße. Alt­hough po­li­ce forced an evic­tion last ye­ar, the IWS con­ti­nues to tack­le the pro­blems uni­que to wo­men re­fu­gees. On No­vem­ber 25 (the In­ter­na­tio­nal Day for the Eli­mi­na­ti­on of Vio­lence against Wo­men), they self-pu­blis­hed InOurOwnWords, a book ai­ming to am­pli­fy un­he­ard voices. It com­pri­ses ten te­sti­mo­ni­als (in both Eng­lish and Ger­man) by ten re­fu­gees re­coun­ting the sexism, ra­cism and trans­pho­bia they ha­ve en­du­red in their home­lands and he­re in Ger­ma­ny. You can gr­ab a co­py at the new IWS lo­ca­ti­on at War­schau­er Stra­ße 23 on Wed­nes­days from 15:00-18:00, or re­ad the di­gi­tal ver­si­on for free at their web­site. < jh iw­s­pace.word­press.com
