NOT HER FAULT
Date: March 17
Time: 2:00PM - 6:00PM
Venue: EMK Centre, MIDAS Centre, House 5, Road 16, 9TH Floor, Dhanmondi
'Not Her Fault' is a seminar on women empowerment for the youth which addresses the patriarchal stigma, victim blaming, rape culture and gender disparity in Bangladesh. The workshop will dig deep into the root causes of these issues and conceptualize a scheme through which we can encourage young people engage in the discourse of sensitive matters regarding women to eventually desensitise these topics and remove the taboo that exists in society surrounding them. The event will feature a workshop on women's issues which include but are not limited to: The Problem of Patriarchy, Women's Rights, Gender Discrimination, Rape Culture and Victim Blaming. The interactive session will deal with why we need discourse, where our society fundamentally does it wrong and the inner nuances of women's rights and gender discrimination in the context of our society.

The month of March every year, as we know, is celebrated as the International Women's History Month. EMK Center's exhibition this March, titled 'Us Women,' therefore is a commemoration of that very occasion. With 27 extraordinary works of art by budding female artists, the exhibition presents a truly riveting medley of individual expressions of how today's youth is viewing the world around them and the state of women and their rights worldwide. While the artworks may vary vastly in terms of the mediums used for their creation, they all cross paths in their humble attempt to tell a unique story – be it tragic, cynical, optimistic, or even factual –based on the artist's personal experiences. EMK Center invites all to come and experience 'Us Women”, not only because of the message that it attempts to convey and its importance in our world, but to also appreciate the efforts of the incredibly skilled young artists behind it. The EMK Center continues to support both visual and performing artists in various fields, both from home and abroad.
