Monthly

Setaweet Circles

Setaweet hosts a monthly circle every second Tuesday of every month according to the Ethiopian Calendar. It is a women-only event where women come together to share their personal stories and perspectives on various topics such as marriage, sex, parenting, feminism and so much more. Thus far, we have had discussions on wearing the hiab as a feminist choice, feminist marriage and parenting, sexism with advertising, beautify ideas and so much more.
 
As usual our circles will be held in Amharic and we will be starting with “….. እኔ አላፍርም” (I am not sorry for…) statements. If you want to be part of our circles, follow Setaweet on its social media platforms to see the details of the events and join.

 

Every Three Months

Open Session

Setaweet hosts Open Sessions once in every three months. Our open sessions are open to all members of the public and feature authors and academics discussing aspects of culture from a feminist perspective. To name a few, Setaweet has organized a discussion with Haregewoin Cherinet, author of ’Set ena Ahiya on the role of women in the Ethiopian Orthodox` Church, and, Konjit Berhan, a former fighter within the EPRP about the armed struggle of the 1970’s as a  woman. 
 
In these consciousness-building discussions and presentations, we engage the Ethiopian community at large and reinforce the importance of having both women and men working towards gender equality in our country. If you want to be part of our circles, follow Setaweet on its social media platforms to see the details of the events and join.
