Charis Stephanie organizes Women & Design - Market and talks. This event is for the underrepresented woman in design. In the Steentjeskerk the designers expose and sell their products and during the talks they talk about how design for women can contribute to society.


The ‘Women & Design Market’ is an exposition and market in one. This place is meant to give female designers some extra attention, lets them be seen and heard. Women in design and art are still underrepresented in for example museums and galeries and earn up to 50% less than their male colleagues. On design and art academies more women graduate, but this is not shown in the work field. With a drink in your hand you can talk to the designers, listen to their process behind their designs and actually buy their work.


In the ‘Women & Design Talks’ social researcher Françoise Molenaar - who wrote articles for the Correspondent about women's experiences with medical care - starts discussions with doctors, designers, system-changers about how the female medical experience can be better and what design solutions are possible. Backed up by Zoë Sluisdom, colleague of social design bureau Afdeling Buitengewone Zaken - they create three interactive sessions with the subjects 'The empowered gynecology experience', 'Trauma-sensitive gynecology' and 'Giving better birth', where your experience can be of value too.
