Fiesta Feminista 2011 is on 25 to 27th November in Kota Kinabalu

For those still not in the know, the second Fiesta Feminista is taking place on 25 to 27th November 2011 in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah, in East Malaysia. From the website:

Fiesta Feminista is

  • an initiative by the Joint Action Group for Gender Equality (JAG)
  • a regular event that happens once every 3-4 years
  • a process of learning about and advocating for issues of feminism, human rights, and democracy in Malaysia
  • a platform for people of all classes, ages, ethnicities, beliefs, gender identities and sexual orientations, locations, and abilities
  • a safe space where thinking out loud is respected and where people can engage each other on fair, equal, and non-violent terms

FF 2011 begins on the International Day Against Violence Against Women which also marks the start of the 16 Days of Activism Against Gender Violence (November 25-December 10). For more information about this global campaign, including how you can take part, please visit the campaign site.

I will be returning to Malaysia in November to attend Fiesta Feminista and will be reporting the event for Kakak Killjoy. Can’t wait!
