FEMME

The Theory of Exclusion

The stories of Katherine Johnson, Dorothy Vaughan, and Mary Jackson are told beautifully in the new Hollywood movie Hidden Figures, but there are so so many more women whose contributions to major scientific breakthroughs and to society as a whole have been omitted from history. This week, as a tribute to Nobel day, Sunna and Taylor discuss the exclusion of women from scientific discoveries and the huge discrepancy in the number of male and female Nobel laureates. They touch on who won Nobel prizes this year (spoiler alert: three women!), women who have won them in the past, and women who were never recognized for their work.

You can listen to this episode tonight at 9pm or anytime on Mixcloud.

Feminist Theatrics

The last episode of F-EMME was all about women in film. This week, we're discussing what it's like for women in the theater industry. Michaela has spent many years acting and performing, and she shares with us some of her experiences in the industry.

We're also thrilled to have Louise Thörner and Ida-Maria Ellström from the feminist theater group September Teatern on the show! They're their upcoming production of "Big Sister", about a social experiment involving 4 women who learn about what it means to be a woman but also about female role models who have been written out of history. Ida-Maria and Louise also talk about their experiences in theater and why it's so important for them to be part of September Teatern.

"Big Sister" will be showing Saturday, May 26th and Sunday, May 27th at Göteborgs dramatiska teater, with two showings each day, at kl. 15 and 18.

Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus

From names to toothbrushes and everything in between, society often codes things as belonging to one gender or another. The pointless "gendering" of everyday things is the topic of this weeks F-EMME episode. We discuss examples from pop culture, the significance of gendered products, and the history behind this phenomenon.

We're discussing specific double standards that exist, including some high-profile examples, why women and men are held to different standards, and how double standards negatively impact everyone in society. We also share a few personal experiences with male-female double standards.
