Raising funds and awareness for the Korean Women's Association United, the Wild Women's Performing Arts Festival will be held again on June 27th. With a bigger venue, more acts and more information, this one promises to be even more exciting than the last.
• This time, we will also have an information booth telling you how you can get further involved in promoting gender equality in Korea by volunteering with various member organizations of the KWAU (www. women21.or.kr).
The KWAU is an incredible organization, and the women who dedicate their lives to running it work really hard at being a significant pain in the Korean government’s patriarchal ass.
• Being a feminist in Korea is no easy job. To show our solidarity with the Korean feminist movement, we will also be selling T-shirts in all sizes that proudly declare “Feminist” in Hangeul. Whether you are female or male, if you believe in equal human rights for women, please buy one and wear it proudly on the subway!
• Little Travelers will also be available at the event. These cute characters are made by women whose lives are affected by HIV/AIDS in South Africa
• Sappho Korea ( English-speaking queer women’s group) will also be there for those looking to join and meet fellow Sapphites.
Over 300 people came out last time to celebrate women's stories and enjoy female performances. It really was a night to remember. So, whether performing or partying, come on out and show your wild side!
