AWAM’s International Women’s Day Event: #DefineYourself

IWD 1 FB (TIME CHGE)

Date: March 7th, 2015
Venue: Wariseni @ Jalan Ampang
Time: 4pm – 7:30pm

In almost every society, women face expectations as to how they should behave, talk, and even think. What happens when we do not fit in expected labels?

The reality is, women come in all shapes and sizes. There is a diversity in how women think, talk and act. Often, we do not have control over how others label or treat us. However, together, we can create a community and support for those who face violence or discrimination because they do not fit in stereotypes roles or conform to societal expectations.

Take part in our wide array of interactive games and booths, take polaroid photos at our hashtag wall, and then grab this opportunity to watch performances from poets, singers, dancers and other female performing artistes to celebrate what it means to be a woman. 

Join us and #DefineYourself

Please call Evie @ 03-7877-4221 if you have any questions.
