Whygossip

I was first introduced to the idea of a gossip through working on artist's film The Scar with Noorafshan Mirza and Brad Butler. The ancient meaning of where women gathered to shared knowledge, wisdom, news, medicine and healing. It draws from the roots of the women’s movement....in the ongoing resistance women have made to capitalism from its early construction.

 

In using this word in these talks we can draw deeply on these roots and lean on the tools and structures of women gathering in order to create community strength and context for shared struggles and questions. 

These gatherings are for all folks.
