About Tango Hembra

Tango Hembra brings a feminist perspective to tango, one of the most controversial artistic environments impregnated by the culture of patriarchy. Hence its name, which far from ascribing to a biologicist or binary look, is a mocking response to that saying inscribed for so many years in the popular imaginary, which said «tango is male». Tango is not only for men but also for all women and sex-gender dissidences who want to make it their territory of expression.
Declared of Interest for the promotion of Women’s Rights by the Legislature of the Autonomous City of Buenos Aires, it is sponsored by Mrs. Susana Rinaldi.
The objectives of Tango Hembra are to collaborate in the diffusion of women artists and femininities in radios and programs specifically dedicated to tango; to promote the equity of quota in all the stages and festivals of the whole country -considering also cachets and central schedules-; to promote the inclusion of women and dissidences in the conformation of juries -which decide on the access to prizes, works, scholarships and subsidies- and in all environment where the problematic of the sector is discussed as well as to act against the installed and naturalized violences in the same one.
