Foundry, the world’s first Business Conversion Hub, are celebrating women the week of the International Women’s Day and in addition to lunch events every day, they give women (…and everyone who supports women) free access to their co-working space all week. On Frifay 6th march our president Jukia Maria Zimmermann will hold the introductory speech.
What is feminism in 2020? Do we still need it? What kind of issues are women still facing today? What is the modern day feminism focusing on? Who are the feminist? Feminism still has a controversial stigma in our minds, but what does it really mean in 2020?
For the last day of our Women’s Week we will tackle this important topic. Feminism, in the past, was seen as something controversial and still is to this day. Come to explore the idea of feminism with us! We are excited to welcome Julia Maria Zimmermann from CID Fraen an Gender to have a speech about the topic at hand.
The speech we will be followed by a panel discussion where we will have a discussion about feminism, featuring panelists with different backgrounds. This is a discussion not to miss!

13:00 Panel discussion with Jannika Salminen, Patrizia Luchetta, George Penn and Dana Moldoveneau
