Empowering women

In the framework of Empowering LBT women project there were three movie evenings with discussions organized at the LGBT Center in Vilnius.
 
With the aim of strengthening the Lithuanian LBT women community 3 films were shown: "Killing us softly 4" (2010), “Tough Guise. Violence, Media & the Crisis of Masculinity” (1999), "Lefties: Angry Wimmin" (2006). Documentaries bring up the topic of women’s rights, gender issues and stereotypes. First one, displayed in February, focuses on the detrimental influence of media in creating the women's images. The second one, shown in March, focuses on gender roles, it’s reflection in media and impact on violence. The third one, shown in June, debates on revolutionary feminism and political lesbianism in UK in the 70's and 80's. Movie screenings were followed by a moderated discussion where the group of women found a safe space to express their opinions related to the given subjects.
