March 8, 2022 marks the 111th anniversary of International Women's Day. To mark the occasion, the member organizations of FrauenForum Saarbrücken and institutions, private individuals and associations have put together a diverse and exciting program.
Throughout March, under the title "relevant. resolute. regional", the important issues of our time will be illuminated and discussed in feminist terms. Politics and art, urban planning and homelessness, pornography and global justice, addiction and money, headscarves and self-defense - the topics of the individual events complement each other and highlight social disruptions and approaches to solutions in equal measure.
