Féminicides : Les meurtres invisibles

Aujourd’hui, la violence masculine est la première cause de mortalité pour les femmes de 16 à 44 ans dans le monde.

Suomalainen seksuaalinen häirintä yhdessä hashtagissa

Suomalainen seksuaalinen häirintä yhdessä hashtagissa

Suomessa on aina ollut seksuaalista häirintää. Jopa esihistoriallinen suullinen perintö tuntee kähmijä-Väinämöisen.

One such story is about a young Lithuanian swimmer, Ruta Meilutyte, who won all possible champions in the world, but at the end of the Rio Olympics surprisingly returned to Lithuania without a single medal.

A Feminist State of the Union

On September 14th, Jean Claude Juncker, on behalf of the European Commission, reviewed a year of EU achievements and outlined his action plan for the next twelve months in the much anticipated “State of the Union” speech.
