issue #6

chain reaction



Dear Freakies,

It has been a year since our last post, and we are back with consistent freaky love to greet you on this year international women’s day. Referencing UNWOMEN, this year’s international theme for IWD is: think equal, build smart, innovate for change. While here in Indonesia, the women’s movement promotes the hashtag #GerakBersama (translation: #MoveTogether). FreakMagz took upon both international and local themes, and put forward to this month’s FreakMagz theme, as: Chain Reaction. We believe that advocacies toward an equal, smarter, and innovative change can only be achieved if we ALL work together and move together. In the hope that a collective action can create a chain to accelerate and amplify a more accommodative and inclusive narrative and bring about comprehensive change.

FreakMagz believe in the power of chain reaction, a chain of support and empathy to promote and spread action and reaction. So, in this year’s IWD festivities, let us chant mantras of equality and equity with collective love and groove.

Happy International Women’s Day, Freakies!

Moving together with Love,



let’s dance!

As a respond to this year’s women’s movement national theme: #MoveTogether, the FreakMagz team and a couple of our friends initiated a dance-based campaign to express our hopes and thoughts to be embraced, reflected, considered and celebrated on this year’s IWD.

Here are 8 human beings, with 8 words, 8 things, or even 8 issues that they have put forward on this 8th March 2019, as a feedback to the experiences that they have been exposed to. Hoping to spark a chain of positive reaction to others!
