17 october 2005
we are planning to show our solidarity to the global campaign towards gender equality, freedoms, peace and justice through transitory occupation of spaces with our bodies - performatively.
one of our understanding of identity-based inequality is based on normative discourses that is solidified through markers on our bodies. we perform our gender roles from the moment we awake to the moment we sleep; from the moment we choose what clothes to wear, how to negotiate behaviour in our daily routines, how we interact with strangers, friends, lovers and our family. for an hour on october 17, we hope to initiate a more critical discourse on gender through subverting these daily gender performances.
join us and be part of a global movement towards equality, freedom, peace, justice and solidarity!
