|How did Femisphera come into being?||| Print ||
At the entire beginning, there was one particular journalistic project.
Why is Femisphera called Femisphera?
Femi does not mean feminists (though we have nothing against this movement, unless it goes to its extremes). Feminine, meaning a woman, is our main topic we are concentrating on. There were mainly women travellers and journalists at the beginning of Femisphera, who are certainly very interested in female topics. Not only women are involved in Femisphera. We have also male members in the association, who are not neglectful towards the femine world.
Goals of Femisphera:
We want to document the life and its people´s problems mainly in the Third World focused predominantly on female topics, through publishing articles, photographs and short films. Our task is to be directly in those places, where media can help due to its dominance and effect. We want to inform the public via articles, interviews, photographic exhibitions, lectures or film. Femisphera also hopes to motivate people to help in those regions.
Who is involved with Femisphera?
People who are not careless towards the female difficulties in the Third World. Some of them are journalists or only enthusiasts, who are willing to dedicate their time and energy also to someone else than only themselves.
