The debate festival Talk Town took place in the Grey Meatpacking District from May 18th-20th, 2016. They spoke of gender, equality, and feminism, and the festival ended with a big party on Friday night, where Kapow Collective and Copenhagen Roller Derby put feminism on roller skates and thereby put the gender-segregated sport life up for debate. With more than 75 events Talk Town became the People’s Meeting for the feminism with debates on everything from transgender rights, African feminism, sexism and gender based violence, equal pay, men’s reproductive options to erotic podcasts and feministic quiz. And all that with a big and diverse audience.
Talk Town was held in connection with Women Deliver, and the festival is a collaboration between the Women’s Council in Denmark and the cultural production collective Indgreb.
