Strange, that while the goal is to achieve gender equality across Europe, in our next news piece, it’s a bit like we are being flown back to the last century. As, after a long time, this year, the Belgian capital’s first women’s club opened in a remarkable Art Nouveau palace.
Although in the early 19th century there were mostly men’s clubs, later, with the spread of feminist movements, women also created safe zones for themselves. These were places where like-minded people met for card parties, special evenings and dances. The newly opened space not only functions as a co-working place, bar, restaurant, and library but also hosts social events such as film screenings, art exhibitions, coaching classes and wellness sessions. It’s up to you to decide whether places like this open or close gender gaps, but one thing is for sure: the design of this unique four-story space, reconstructed by architect Hélène Van Marcke, exudes a stunning sense of harmony, not least because it is home to works by strictly female designers and artists.
