Feminist self-defence workshop @ Smoqua

Within Smoqua Festival, on Friday, May 18th from 2 pm at Palach (Kruzna 8), a feminist self-defense workshop for women is to be held by Mónica Cano Abadía (Spain).

Monica holds black belt in Oriental Kick Boxing, she is LGBTIQ and Feminist activist, a Doctor in Philosophy, specialized in Western Feminist Theory.

And about feminist self-defense she says that it goes beyond learning physical techniques. It reinforces the autonomy of women by enhancing physical, emotional and social security. It is also a way of life that requires mechanisms of prevention, critical analysis of gender-biased social practices, and the creation of networks of sorority.
