Woman Scream 2019, Perth Australia


An event that takes part of the global chain of events of the 12th Woman Scream Festival 2022 (Grito de Mujer), will take place in Perth, Western Australia on March 5th, 2022 at the Moon Café of 323 William Street in Northbridge. This event is coordinated by WA Poets, and it includes online streaming via Zoom, so people could attend from anywhere. In case of Covid restrictions, this event might take place via Zoom only, so far it will be held on a physical venue. Instructions for online attendance via Zoom will be supplied on the day before the event page on Facebook or via DM on request on the Fanpage of WA Poets. 

Feature poets include: 
Taonga Sendama

This unique event features women speaking, rhyming, screaming to be heard in our current climate of discrimination, subtle and obvious violence towards women. This event features local women poets. Funds raised from WS go to Starick.
Through this event, the audience will have an increased understanding of the lives of women in our community and the daily issues they both grapple and overcome. Further, this event is one link in a chain of international arts-based events that mark International Women’s Day and demand an end in violence towards women.
This event takes place on Whadjuk Noongar Land. As such we would like to pay our respects to Elders past, present and future and acknowledge that this is, was and always will be Aboriginal Land.
The "Woman Scream International Poetry and Arts Festival" (Grito de Mujer), is an annual international event that is held to mark International Woman's Day. WA’s Women Scream event is part of the festival.

Woman Scream 2022: Origin, is supporting the initiatives of the Action Coalitions for Generation Equality of UN Women for the next years and it's a tribute to our women ancestors and native women, whose cultures persist over time in several countries and who still suffer continuous abuses, in absence of laws that promote the validation of their rights. It is also a tribute to the women whose lineage, courage and strength, since ancient times, have been forerunners of the collective dream, towards a life free from women violence and equal women's rights.
