Across a large part of the planet, the feminist movement is inexorably rising to the fore in the transformation of political action and in the postulate of other, more equal and less patriarchal ways of inhabiting the world.
In the context of 8 March, the Museo Reina Sofía presents a series of activities — round-table discussions, lectures, workshops, seminars, guided tours – in collaboration with people and feminist collectives actively participating in contemporary debates from situated stances and focal points, granting visibility to the diversity of a movement that is in motion and constantly questioning to redefine the conditions of present-day struggles.
