The gender of the future


Gender equality is far from being a reality, with more men than women leading companies and theatre institutions, it’s as simple as that. The reactions to this fact vary widely: women career movements fight for female leadership; others see this approach as just a replacement of one power system by another. The latter point out that new structures, e.g. in independent theatres, are less patriarchal for a structural reason. And the demands for quota in employment schemes are countered by the approach aiming to develop a new concept of intersectional diversity in cultural institutions.

This session will offer an experienced insight into the different aspects of the current efforts and allow for a more fact-based discussion. Hopefully we will unveil a fresh strategy and maybe even find the way to unite forces with unexpected allies.
