Equality Province

Kielce

More space for LGBT and feminism in the Świętokrzyskie voivodship

The informal Equality Province group was formed three years ago for purposes of improved integration of the local non-heteronormative (LGBT+) community in Kielce and the Świętokrzyskie province. The group organises regular open meetings and events associated with preventing homo-, bi-, and transphobia, and fostering women’s rights, i.a. 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence, WATCH DOCS Festival, One Billion Rising, Light a Candle for Dominik and Kacper, Living Libraries.

WenDo – kicks, punches, setting boundaries

The Feminist Fund mini-grant will make it possible to organise a two-day WenDo self-defence and assertiveness workshops for women and persons socialised for female roles. The workshop will be an occasion to learn basic self-defence techniques: punches, kicks, releases, and blocks, and – occasionally – to practice assertive responses in line crossed situations. WenDo is an enormously empowering experience, potentially morphing into an opportunity to meet persons interested in co-operating with the Equality Province to organise subsequent events indispensable to women or the LGBT community.

Grant amount: 3390.00 PLN
