Empowering Voices: Women in Focus

Six women, six strong voices: we meet artists who draw attention to social and political grievances with their work. And young activists who are fully committed to fighting injustice.

Feminist disco queen: Dua Lipa

London pop star Dua Lipa's songs are calls for female self-empowerment: “boys will be boys”, she sings, “but girls will be women” – and are expected to dutifully conform to a chauvinistic society. Time for that to end!

 

The lives of activists: "Dear Future Children"

Three young women are fighting for a better future: the documentary “Dear Future Children” accompanies Hilda in Uganda, Rayen in Chile and Pepper in Hong Kong. They are all protesting for climate protection, justice and democracy.

 

Literary icon: Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie   

Nigerian Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie is a renowned feminist writer. She has dedicated her life to reflecting on deep-seated sexism and racism. She is inspiring women all around the world – from Beyoncé to Angela Merkel!

 

Politics and privacy: The art of Shirin Neshat

Iranian-in-exile Shirin Neshat addresses gender roles and social issues in her photographs and videos. Her new work, “Land of Dreams”, tells of dreams and memories: it is at once both very personal and highly political.
