Do you sometimes feel that society isn’t quite what it could be? Are you fed up with being silent? Would you most of all just like to smash the patriarchy and get on with it?

Then the Feminist Curse Night is for you. The Feminist Curse Night is a successful concept created by the Finnish feminist think tank Feministinen ajatushautomo Hattu. We offer you an evening of a warm and welcoming atmosphere of fellow feminists, the quick-witted host Maria Pettersson, the hilarious feminist stand-up comedian Jamie MacDonald, a DJ providing you with confident vibes, and an open mic waiting for your voice. Own the stage with your personal experience, a story you heard, general anger towards the patriarchy, a poem, song, or anything else you feel you need to get out. Or come along and cheer those taking the stage, while noticing you are not alone with your thoughts. Let the power of feminism warm you up, the stage is yours!

The Feminist Curse Night is a collaboration between the Finnish Cultural Institute and Beursshouwburg.
