No to fundamentalism

One of the attractions at Femei pe Mătăsari was a run in high heels, at which everyone was accepted (including guys) with a single condition: to wear high heels. Not even the height was an issue, participants were split in groups based on the heel size.

In the middle of this was also a small group of feminist fundamentalists, protesting and calling such thing “sexist”. They were a few and people pretty much ignored them, initially I didn’t even thought about taking a picture of their group, but when noticed I accidentally have one changed my mind, better talk about issues than keeping them covered.

Hipsters on Matasari

If the premier hipster event in Bucharest is Street Delivery, there had to be a copycat, that’s what hipsters do, copy the “alternative” things. Happening only a week after, Femei pe Mătăsari (Women on Matasari) has pretty much the same feel with Street Delivery, many of the booths are in both places, still this one is more commercial, there are a lot of sellers offering their hand-made wares, from clothes to earrings to cupcakes. At they don’t even have beer, only radler.
