On Occasion of March 8th / Recasting of Meanings

Women have been consistently and impertinently othered at the Maidan. Of course, this practice is part of the post-Soviet “norm”, and female participants for the most part were unaware of being othered; such rhetoric seems respectful and familiar to them. Isolated individual attempts to oppose this trend were hardly noticeable – a woman’s voice in the male-dominated space can be barely heard.
