Feminist Leadership

Melania Mieli

In our daily life we are accustomed to see the leaders of patriarchal society acting in all their “splendor”: white males walking with a briefcase 24 hours of skin in hand, rampant politicians shouting outrageous slogans, fasting donors of culture of consensus. But power is not a machist prerogative. Re-discussing the asymmetry of power, status, resources, which is built and supported by sexist practices today takes on a particular urgency because this imbalance limits cultural, civil and sexual development. Investigating authority with courage thus becomes a weapon to raise awareness of one’s strengths and limiting behavior.
During this workshop we will investigate the formal and the erotic power, we will grasp the ongoing transformations and we will experiment with new forms of influence.
