(Paths in Emancipation II)
The second episode of our discussion series Paths in Emancipation, on the feminist movement and the Black Protests in Poland, will air Tuesday, Mar. 23 at 7pm CET.
The link will be posted here.
Since September 2016, people in Poland have been marching in the streets to protest against further restrictions on abortion access. Four years after the beginning of “the Black Protests,” the Polish Constitutional Court declared it illegal to terminate pregnancy even when the fetus risks severe illness. How do the protests look right now? What has changed during this period? Why have women been shouting “Wypierdalać”? If the protests are a form of “weak resistance,” as philosopher Ewa Majewska suggests, can they still have powerful effects? What are the different sides in the conflict? What language do they employ, and do they even communicate with each other? Is this “war,” as protestors have declared?
These are some of the questions to be discussed in the second episode of our discussion series Paths in Emancipation. The guest of this episode is Katarzyna Wężyk, journalist and author of Aborcja jest (There is abortion), just released by the Polish publishing house Agora. The event is hosted and introduced by Olga Słowik (Faculty of Arts, Charles University).

Paths in Emancipation
This spring Contradictions: A Journal for Critical Thought and the Prague City Library present a series of discussions on emancipation. Each month we focus on a new theme drawn from contemporary social movements. Together with experts and activists, we’ll discuss the most pressing questions of our moment and delve into the longest-standing social problems. Because we know that the present moment will soon be history – but also that history is never entirely past. We’ll ask hard questions, because human freedom doesn’t have time for easy answers.
