    The time is now for a Feminist Europe

    [Brussels, 16 December 2018] Writer and women’s rights activist, Elif Shafak: ‘It’s a crucial moment for global feminism. (…) We women sometimes play a role in the continuity of patriarchy, because patriarchy is not a black and white system in which men oppress women. It’s much more complicated.

    Disrupting the continuum of violence against women and girls

    [Brussels, 15 May 2018] Despite progress over the last decades on equality between women and men, there is not a single country in the world where women and girls are free from male violence, and there is not a single area in any woman’s life where she is not exposed to the threat or reality of acts of male violence.
