Reading with Julia Korbik and Presentation of the Gender Prize 2023

Stilisierte Urkunde

In an exclusive pre-reading, author Julia Korbik will give us an insight into her new book "Schwestern. Die Macht des weiblichen Kollektivs" and thus creates a wonderful setting for the presentation of the Gender Award 2023 of the FH Potsdam.

Whether it's #metoo or the protests in Iran, there have been numerous occasions in recent years when women have stood up for each other. It's a principle that was already propagated by feminists in the 1970s – it's no coincidence that one of their most famous slogans was: Sisterhood is powerful!

But sisterhood is more than networking, more than female solidarity. It is a political practice. Julia Korbik (author ofStand Up. Feminismus für Anfänger und Fortgeschrittene and Oh, Simone! Warum wir Beauvoir wiederentdecken sollten) explores the principle of sisterhood in her new book, seeking to understand what it can look like – and what prevents it.

As part of the reading, Hyeonji Kim will receive the Gender Prize 2023 of the FH Potsdam for her master's thesis entitled "Designing a Customizable Period Tracker With a Human-Centered Approach and Data Visualisation to Support Menopausal Transition".

For many years, the Gender Prize of the FH Potsdam has honoured outstanding theses that deal with gender aspects of the respective subject area and the social background in a well-founded manner and demonstrate originality and sensitivity.

We would be delighted if you could attend the Gender Award 2023 ceremony on the 12th of December 2023. All members of the university are cordially invited.
