Silent women

Forum Silent Women

Václav Havel Library, October 4-5th, 2019

Forum usiluje o vytvoření platformy pro otázky moderního způsobu života žen. V době, kdy jsou všechny staré hodnotové koncepty zpochybňovány nebo jsou v procesu přeměny, chceme dodat ženám sebevědomí k hledání a formulování vlastních stanovisek. Chceme rozvíjet odbornou debatu a podporovat klidný dialog směřující k výsledkům. Dnes, kdy je konflikt mezi pohlavími instrumentalizován propagandou, je to víc než důležité.

The Forum seeks to create a platform for questions about the present way of life of women. At a time when all old value concepts are being? challenged or are in the process of transformation, we want to give women the confidence to find their own opinions. We want to develop expert debate and promote calm dialogue towards results. Today? when gender conflict is instrumentalized by propaganda, is this discussion more than important.

Das Forum bemüht sich um eine Plattform für Fragen, die das Leben der modernen Frau beinflusst. In der Zeit, wenn alle alten Wertekonzepte in Frage gestellt werden oder sich im Transformationsprozess befinden, möchten wir Frauen das Selbstvertrauen anbieten, ihre eigene Meinung und Stimme zu finden. Wir wollen eine Fachdebatte aufbauen und einen ruhigen, fokussierten Dialog fördern. In einer Era, wo Geschlechterkonflikte durch Propaganda instrumentalisiert werden, ist dies mehr als wichtig.

 „Give us our words back. We want them to describe what they meant for centuries again. May truth also be the way to truth, may compassion be the goal of education, may law and justice be truly law and justice, may lies be banned and tenderness not only reside in our hearts, but also fly freely over our heads. Return confidence to us in the words that we utter to understand what we live in. Otherwise you steal from us the opportunity to live in harmony with the world around us, you privatize our present and take our faith into the future. Words speak to us from the past and create a bond with it, words taught to us by mothers and poets, through words we understand beauty and freedom. What you do is a crime, and we must confront it. Give us back truthful words!“  Magda Vášáryová (Stolen words)
