Feminist Swearing Night

What the #$@&%*! would you like to get off your chest?

Do you ever feel like society isn’t exactly what it should be? Are you tired or pissed off with certain aspects of it? Do you just feel like cursing and smashing the patriarchy?

In celebration of 100 years of women’s suffrage, Feminist Swearing Night comes to the UK for the first time.
This open-mic event offers an opportunity to sound off about patriarchy, politics, inequality and injustice. Participants are free to do this through sharing their personal stories, rhymes, songs, general rants or any other means of expression.
The night is moderated by the founders of the Finnish feminist think-tank Hattu, Rosa Meriläinen, Saara Särmä and Johanna Vehkoo. They are joined by other special guests including Hollie McNish and comedian Elf Lyons.

Feminist Swearing Nights have been hugely popular in Brussels, Helsinki and Dublin. The concept is originally created by the Finnish Feminist think-tank Hattu and is now brought to London in partnership with the Finnish Institute in London and the British Library.
