May 15: FEMOCRACY at »World Views« on election day

Our recommendation: Schedule your visit to the polling station on Sunday, May 15, in the morning hours or directly after lunch. Because starting at 3 p.m., Femocracy impressively shows us how passionately and tenaciously women* had to fight for their voice in German politics and what macho side-swipes they still face despite their expert commitment. A fitting input, then, especially on NRW election day!

After the film, you are cordially invited to join in the exchange. We welcome Marianne Wendzinski, who was the first mayor of the city of Dortmund from 1989 to 2014. The conversation will be moderated by Maresa Feldmann, Head of the Equal Opportunities Office of the City of Dortmund.

The program is aimed primarily at women with and without an immigrant background, but is also open to anyone who enjoys watching good films. The conversations following the film screenings – with and without guests – are usually passionate and engaged, but always characterized by mutual respect.

May 15, 3 p.m., Kino im U Dortmund: Femocracy (Director: Torsten Körner, DE 2020, 99′, OF), free admission, recommended for ages 14 and up. More details about the film
