The Romanian Network for the Prevention and Combating of Violence against Women (VIF Network) organizes on Sunday, October 25, starting with 15:00, a public action to raise awareness on violence and to protest against violence against women.
We will broadcast live on FILIA Center and Feminism Romania Facebook pages, from University Square - Colțea Park Bucharest, where a group of women’s rights activists will gather to speak out against violence and for the safety of girls and women regardless of ethnicity, race, gender identity.
Colleagues from various parts of the country will join online – from the SPICC Association in Timișoara, the Eastern European Institute of Reproductive Health in Târgu Mureș, A.L.E.G Sibiu and Artemis from Cluj.
This year, the March “Together for women’s safety!” organized in Bucharest by the VIF Network would have reached its 6th edition. Although it prevents us from being together physically, the COVID pandemic shows us the necessity to remain united against violence and to send a strong message of awareness and condemnation of gender violence.
The pandemic amplifies and aggravates cases of violence against girls and women. The lack of specialized services and the poor organization of state institutions is felt all the more acutely during the crisis we are going through.
We want respect, safety and non-discriminatory treatment for girls and women during the pandemic, given that the current health crisis exacerbates existing problems and causes new ones.
Isolation at home forced some women to live permanently in the same house with the aggressor.
The pandemic has intensified verbal, mental, physical and sexual violence. It showed us, again, how central and local authorities ignore the inequalities that girls and women face: sexism, racism, classism and transphobia.Adauga un comentariu
