Are you a woman who wants to empower herself? Do you crave being the SHE-E-O of your own life, or are you just a total loser and want to learn how to be more of a bitch to the people around you? Let out your inner goddess at FemCon! We’ve developed a fool-proof method so you can become the best possible version of yourself - now every woman can find their inner toxic girlboss!

The all-female comedy group Funny Gurlz have been doing stand-up together for years, but they never seem to reach as much success as their male collegues in comedy. Is it because they’re women, or are they just not that funny? There’s only one way to find out - make feminism work for them by hosting a feminist conference and making all an all female audience (and a few boyfriends) pay money for being told what’s wrong with them!

FemCon is a satirical theater performance exploring commercial feminism. In recent years, the commercialization of feminism has encreased rapidly, with an abundance of quick “solutions” offered to women’s problems. Women are the majority of buyers of these solutions and in this way feminism has become accumulated into materialism.  

FemCon premiered in Borgarleikhúsið (Reykjavík City Theater) as part of their program  “Unwrapped” — an annual series of three different shows, each produced in one month and performed in a raw performance space. The series went on to win “Sprout of the year” at Gríman, the Icelandic Theater Awards for the performances of the year 2021–2022, including FemCon.
