The Women’s Salon by the Heidelberg IWC is a monthly English-language talk and discussion on current, changing and challenging topics all related to women. From feminism and #MeToo to intersectionality and emotional labor, we want to talk about it all. Intimate and inviting, this will be a place to learn more about the issues in our lives, culture and world; a time where we can talk about it and share our own stories; and a space to foster ideas, opinions and conversations.
Historically, salons are associated with the French literary and philosophical movements of the 17th and 18th centuries, and are defined as a gathering of people for the purpose of literature, art or discussion.
Topics change monthly and are moderated by an HIWC Member. There is recommended reading for each session to guide the discussion and to expand our knowledge and vocabulary. We encourage you to join us and participate in whichever way you feel comfortable. Please note that while the Women's Salon is open to non-members, it is a female-only safe space.
Topic: Body Image Part II
This evening we will be discussing body image again, but this time with a slightly different focus. We will be discussing how our body image is affected by a range of different things including our gender, aging, menopause, health issues, handicaps, and more.
