Hashtag Feminism Nano Games Gaelcon
This is a drop-in game; if you didn't sign up at the Gaelcon site (gaelcon.com, but not quite ready yet, check back) check the desk to see if we're full and if not, come on in!
When we ran this in Galway, it was a great forum for discussion about bodies, tropes, words, gestures, labels, anger and acceptance, and how exactly the film "Vulvafinger" would be marketed. It was great fun!
Written by feminists from eleven different countries, #Feminism offers bite-sized takes on contemporary feminist issues. Each of the 34 nano-games in this collection requires between three and five participants, simple (if any) props, and up to an hour of play time.
The games range from silly to serious, including scenarios about selfies and rom-coms as well as reproductive rights and domestic violence. And of course, enjoyment has no ideological boundaries–there are games here for participants new to feminism as well as those experienced in making gender arguments on the internet.
