Vášáryová, Brožová: She-Wolf

  • Where: Václav Havel Library, Ostrovní 13, Prague 110 00
  • When: October 6, 2017, 19:00 – 21:00

Vlčice (She-Wolf) is a book by Karel Hvížďala of interviews with Magda Vášáryová (a candidate for the Slovak presidency, among other things) and Iva Brožová (winner of a dispute with the Czech president, among other things). The author borrowed the title from English history, where clever, ambitious and diplomatically adroit queens were dubbed she-wolves.

The book will be “baptised” by Lenka Bradáčová, while Dáša Vokatá and Oldřich Kaiser will provide musical accompaniment.

Renata Klusáková will moderate the evening and host a talk with the two women.

Speech to Joint Session of the United States Congress, Washington

„We are still a long way from that „family of man;“ in fact, we seem to be receding from the ideal rather than drawing closer to it. Interests of all kinds: personal, selfish, state, national, group and, if you like, company interests still considerably outweigh genuinely common and global interests. We are still under the sway of the destructive and thoroughly vain belief that man is the pinnacle of creation, and not just a part of it, and that therefore everything is permitted. There are still many who say they are concerdend not for themselves but for the cause, while they are demonstrably out for themselves and not for the cause at all. We are still destroying the planet that was entrusted to us, and its environment. We still close our eyes to the growing social, ethnic and cultural conflicts in the world. From time to time we say that the anonymous megamachinery we have created for ourselves no longer serves us but rather has enslaved us, yet we still fail to do anything about it.“
