Happy women’s day! This video is from the last Women’s Day Out that we organize. Female empowerment, getting together and uniting is what we believe in!
We reflected on the Feminine Sacred before. We want to share it here with you again, toghether with warm invitation to come and participate in our meetings! Just send us an email or connect on Facebook.
The women’s meeting is now known as the ‘sacred’ space and moment in which all women who sympathize with the immigration cause are welcome.
Without even mentioning the ancient concepts related to the Sacred Feminine, the event itself has strong characters of exaltation and unity for the present women.
Ultimately, we found out that women are not that much in public or going out, because they face constantly male oppression, discrimination and disempowerment. Therefore, we offer the Day Out as a safe space where women can come, express themselves, cook together, have nice talks, dance and enjoy a peaceful and friendly atmosphere.
We have been organizing Women’s Day Out roughly every two months, and it has reached women from different groups and living spaces all over Nijmegen, offering literally a Day Out off their normal daily lives. It is now known as a frequent encounter of females and in each edition more and more girls, kids, women and elders come together and celebrate their feminine nature in a safe and open place. In this sense, it’s not silly to compare the way these women gather with the ancient rituals to celebrate the Feminine Sacred.
Our dear friend Laura is going filmmaking in Greece in april. Ever modest and very essential as a friend and in our justPeople collective, she aims to shed light on the people who are stuck between borders and systems, juggling between basic needs, a family in a country in ruins, and hoping to get to a destination where they can rebuild their lives.
In terms of basic needs and safety, refugees, activists and humanitarian aid workers are still struggling every day in a situation that is still much more urgent than what we can see. Check out the video for a short introduction. For more information and to support, visit the crowdfunding page.

Another month, another fantastic women’s day out. A beautiful sunny afternoon at De Klinker of cooking, eating, dancing, laughing and talking with one another. We enjoyed traditional dishes like mujaddara and fasoolya khadra thanks to the great women who cooked, and afterwards we enjoyed some tea,coffee and biscuits and followed that with some dancing- so… Continue reading Women’s Day Out!
Dear women, come along tomorrow (Friday) for a nice afternoon of great food and company! See you at the De Klinker Nijmegen.
Update on the demonstration “Nijmegen against hate” today: How can you let someone speak at a demonstration against hate who preaches hate in the rest of thes time? At this demonstration, nazis were walking around. And a Pegida guy was speaking. After his doubtable words, he was walking off with other nazis. This is not… Continue reading How do you make a demonstration a safe place? Anti racism must be the base of it!
