This year’s twenty-first festival is centred around connecting, embracing, diversifying, both domestic and international collectives, which are uniting in the fight for equity and equality.
Bodeča Neža is awarded for the most sexist statement of the year by the Red Dawns collective and the editorial board of Spol.si website together with the interested public. This dishonorable title can be given to anyone who publicly attacks, humiliates and insults others based on gender, sexual orientation and/or gender identity.
Of the many nominated statements we received via our online form, the working group judged that 33 statements met the criteria for sexist speech. Which is the most spiky one?
We leave the decision to you.
Who will receive the dishonorable award is going to be decided together at the award-giving ceremony on 3 March 2020, Tuesday, which will happen this year in cooperation with City Of Women. In addition to the spiky tenderness for the sexist statement, WoW Awards will also be presented for feminist heroines.
