From September 29 to October 2, 2016, we attended the Feminism and Riot Camp. For today's show, we accompanied a queer feminist rap workshop with Duffy aka DACID GO8LIN and Maira Caixeta. Today we serve up a review of this one.

We listen to the German journalist and political scientist Antje Schrupp in her lecture "On the history and topicality of feminism". She gave this speech as part of the conference: "Positions and perspectives of feminist-oriented girls* work III" in Bredbeck in Germany. This contribution was taken over by RadioBlau from Leipzig.

In memory of Karin Bruns.

The traveling traders were back on the Traunsee in 2016 with the ship St. Nikolaus. This year, the speakers gave their keynote speeches on the topic of "boundless knowledge". Brigitte Buchhammer spoke about "Human images as a challenge for feminist philosophy", Sára Bereczki spoke about "Game-theoretical consideration of economic logic". Tania Araujo and Marissa Lôbo spoke about "Philosophizing Queerfeminist - away from hegemonic discourses".

FIFTITU% organized this cruise for the fifth time.

On Saturday, September 24, 2016, the "Traveling Merchants" will once again take to the water. This year, we will be navigating around the concept of "boundless knowledge" with the St. Nikolaus on Lake Traunsee.

Punkurica 2.0 was an artivist action that took place on several levels. It consisted of a summer school for DJanes, a feminist self-defense workshop and a peer-to-peer feminist counseling meeting. The festival focused exclusively on female*, trans*, non-binary*, genderqueer* and agender* people. The Radical Queer Affinity Collective organized it in Budapest in July. We serve a short reportage about this event.

A full report on Punkurica 2.0 will be featured in the series SPACEfemFM - Women's Radio on September 5, 2016 on Radio FRO.

After around ten months of an all-male government in the Upper Austrian state parliament, we have finally "got" a woman* in Upper Austria. The new Upper Austrian SPÖ leader Birgit Gerstorfer was also sworn in as a state councillor at the beginning of July.

The Upper Austrian women's government also met in front of the Landhaus on July 7. At this meeting, a man* was sworn in as the provincial councillor for men's affairs and childcare. The topic on which resolutions were passed this time was self-employment/economy/career.

We are pleased to invite you again to this year's "Schwimmfisch" at the Danube beach in Alt Urfahr on
Wednesday, August 24th at 5:00 pm.

Address: Donaustrand in Alt Urfahr, after the "Goldenes Schiff" inn

Grills and drinks will be provided. Please bring your own delicacies to put on the barbecue.

We will take the space to network in a relaxed outdoor setting, swim with or against the current, reflect on "Feminism and Riot 2016", talk about the upcoming "Feminism and Riot Camp" and other things! Just as we like :-)

If you have interested friends, you are welcome to bring them along.

June 2 was declared International Whores' Day in reference to the sex workers' movement in France. On June 2, 1975, around 150 sex workers went on strike in Lyon (France), occupying a church and initiating a high-profile action that is considered to be one of the key initial impulses for the European sex workers' movement

This year, maiz - the self-organization by and for migrants - also organized the city tour "On the trail of sex work in Linz". A team of city guides accompanies you through 5 stations with information on sex work in Linz.

Roswitha Kröll produced the reportage.

For the fifth time, the Alliance 8 March and #OhneUnsVielSpaß organized a Männerlose Parallel-Landtagssitzung. We were there again in front of the Landhaus. This time it was about women's poverty. According to statistics published by Eurostat, the pay gap between women and men in Austria was 23 percent in 2014. The EU average was 16 percent. Statistically speaking - women in Austria work for free from October 11 until the end of the year. Women are also more often only employed part-time.

With the exclusion of women from the Upper Austrian state government, the voice of over 50% of the population is missing from this important representation. However, diversity, transparency, freedom and informed citizens are the basis of a functioning democracy. This is why the Upper Austrian Women's Government decided on concrete measures for more democracy and diversity under the motto "Democracy needs freedom - needs women".

The next parallel session will take place on May 12, 2016, once again in front of the Landhaus in Linz, and is looking forward to welcoming supporters.
