Women's Salon

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.

From September 2019 - March 2020, the Women’s Salon will be focusing on health topics in alignment with the new FAWCO Target Program: Health and the announcement of the next Target Project in March 2020. In coordination with our sister clubs, AIWC Cologne and AWC Hamburg, we’re excited to dive into the issues concerning our own health and the health of women around the world.

Topic: Pregnancy, Infertility and Loss 

Description: There is a lot to unpack, frankly each topic could be given a dedicated evening for discussion, but we’ve decided to group them together. In part, it is in fact hard to discuss one without addressing the others; pregnancy, infertility and loss are often all wrap together in one form or another for many women. So here’s an opportunity to lay it all bare and get into the joys, confusion, surprises and desperation...
