Female Virtues

Although this fascinating slogan has already become a cultural meme, let’s look at it in a slightly subversive way. And let’s answer this question: here and now, within a patriarchal system of oppression that is about to collapse, what virtues should be “dedicated” to just over half of our society? Perhaps we should know what these virtues might be, in order to avoid “female flaws”? Isn’t it exasperating to even think about this, in this day and age? Let’s look at femininity, not necessarily through the prism of outdated social duties, but rather through the lens of freedom, play, independence, and dignity. Let us reclaim the virtues of progress and modernity – films shown in this section might help us a little.

Moms On Fire

Joanna Rytel
Sweden 2016, 12’
An ordinary neighbourhood in an ordinary city. Two women sit on the sofa and rub their pregnant bellies. Four days to go. The situation is as unbearable as it is inevitable. Masturbation is not an option, it’d be impossible to reach the clit; the boyfriend isn’t there, but he’s boring anyway. The only advantage of having a second child is that you no longer have to play with the first one.
