WES to Organize World’s First-Ever Feminist ComicCon Convention

by on December 14, 2016
 

FCCU – Women Empowerment Society is scheduled to organize world’s first-ever Feminist ComicCon with the underlying theme of women empowerment on Nov. 2-3, 2016.

WES Feminist ComicCon will provide the attendees with everything they love about San Diego ComicCon convention… and more. The core idea behind WES Feminist ComicCon is to shatter stereotypes which dictate that videogames and comics are male-dominant industries.

It strives at crushing arguments that say women are only apt at making sandwiches and do not belong in an industry which is all about creativity, mental fortitude, and analytical prowess. The convention aims at highlighting Pakistani women who have achieved extraordinary in the fields of gaming, comics, and arts & design.

The two-day convention will exhibit a number of activities including cosplaying competition, fan art, entertainment trivia, gaming, flash mob, stalls, battle of the bands, and more. There will also be an elaborative panel discussion with the likes of Nigar – Pakistan’s first cartoonist – Misha Shafi – a multi-talented actor and performer – and Khaya Ahmed – consultant script writer for Marvel Comics and Burqa Avenger.

Both winners and attendees will not only be taking home an array of cool prizes and the experience of a lifetime, but also a fresh mindset which will help them recognize women as an integral part of videogames industry.

WES Feminist ComicCon will be open to everyone, but registration is mandatory. Those who wish to attend the convention can get themselves registered by either heading over to the link provided below or by visiting WES Registration Desks set up all across Forman Christian College. If you are an outsider and wish to attend the event, do not forget to give our Rules & Regulations a quick glance.
