*Feminist Culture House (FCH) is an artistic research project led by a curatorial collective. It functions as a peer-led supportive structure for those who are practicing in the Finnish art field, but due to—for example, structural racism and cis-sexism—have to work harder to be recognised. FCH creates a caring and inclusive feminist working community based on sharing, togetherness, celebrating, and supporting one’s peers. 

The office which is located in Malminkatu 5, Kamppi, Helsinki. Our facilities are accessible on the street level, assistant dogs are welcome, there is no accessible toilet in the space office.

What is discrimination?

A simple definition of discrimination is that a person is treated unfavourably, or someone’s character is defamed in a way that is connected to at least one of the following grounds:

transgender identity or non-normative gender expression
cultural or ethnic background
religion or other conviction
functional ability
sexual orientation
Discrimination can be direct or indirect. Inadequate accessibility, harassment (sexual or otherwise) and instigation of discriminatory practices are also types of discrimination.

What is harassment/sexual harassment?

Everyone has the right to not be sexually harassed while they’re working, regardless of whether the harasser is a facilitator, employer, colleague, guest or another content producer. Harassment is an action that offends a person’s honour and is tied to one or more of the grounds of discrimination mentioned above.

Harassment can be holding someone up to ridicule, or demeaning generalisations that are connected to grounds of discrimination. Harassment can also by nature be sexual. In addition to comments and words, this can include unwanted touching, meaningful glances, groping, jokes, suggestions and sexual images. It can include sexually-toned language. It can also include unwanted compliments, invitations or innuendos. Sexual harassment differs from normal flirting in that the former is unwanted. The target of harassment determines whether or not the behaviour is offensive and defamatory.
