We here at reclaimtheinternet.com were part of numerous lectures, workshops, and conferences on the topic of strong women. At first, we were part of the audience, we were learning about history, about the current situation and about how we can improve our current state. In time, we assumed the role of lecturers, advisers, and presenters. We have educated ourselves, and now we are helping others, still learning new information and new ways.
What is it all about
There are countless conferences regarding the theme of a strong woman. A large part of the male sex is noticeable among the lecturers and the audience. There is an even bigger number of those (men and women) who are not quite sure what we are talking about, as well as those who disagree with us, although they can not reasonably explain why, or explain exactly what a strong woman means.
The conference of strong women is there to educate, inspire, encourage. The goal is to make this world better not only for our daughters but also for our sons. But we are not just concentrated on the future. Our desire is not to forget those who fought before us. Our goal is to help those who are there now.
We provide a space for the victims to share their thoughts and raise their voice. We are here to show victims who can not yet speak that we are here for them. Misogyny, abuse, threats, shaming, and other problems and manifestations live in everyday communication. This behavior is also very much present on the Internet. Not only for adult women, but also for teenagers. Not just for them, but also for the children.
We fight together for justice and equality. We fight together for every person. We are fighting against injustice, against prejudices and stereotypes. We believe that life without violence is a basic human right, we provide support and encourage individual and institutional response to violence and thus contribute to the strengthening of civil society.
We are aiming to be strong individually and together. We encourage any argumentative debate, any question. We provide literature and guidance. But we do not tolerate stereotypes, prejudices, injustice, lack of respect. Every person should feel strong, and that strength should come from a safe and positive place. We should all be a change we are waiting for, and therefore there will always be a conference on this subjects.
