As we enter our 11th year Sibéal asks us all to Reflect and Resist.  What is resistance?  What are feminist forms of resistance?  Are we living within a culture of cruelty, uninformed, petty and spiteful?  What can we do with anger and grief?  Another world is possible, one in which we learn within freedoms bounded by unfreedom, our common need for sustenance, shelter and care.  We ask for considerations on what social existence is, what creativity means within our current forms of unchosen cohabitation.  We call for celebrations of embodied life and all the joy, pain, longing, grief, love, rage, anger and calm that we live through and alongside.  We call on your stories and memories and the stories and memories of your mothers, grandmothers and ancestors.  Another world is possible, please come join us in thinking it through, in enacting it, it’s whisper, cry, laugh and shout.
