RoR took part in the solidarity demo with Polish women who went on strike agains the total ban of abortion.
The demo took place in front of the Polish embassy in Budapest on October 3, 2016. RoR members were wearing black as a solidarity sign with Polish women who went into the streets dressed in black.
Yesterday the demo dedicated to the women's rights and position of women in society took place in Budapest. There were around 70+ people, several empowering speeches and great mood created by RoR and a lot of shouting!
Among others the people shouted slogans (both in English and Hungarian), such as:
- Feminista forradalom / feminist revolution
Join us at KLIT for this workshop aimed at exploring our potential ways of practicing self-defense through our voice.
We will talk about our everyday experiences in situations when we as girls are or can be potentially attacked due to our sex\gender.Then we will discuss in which situations we can use our voice (together with body movements or alone) to stand up for ourselves. We will explore the power of our voice through different games and exercises.
Girrrrls are welcome!!!
25 November is an International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women. On the next say, November 26, a number of feminist and women rights NGOs organized a demonstration to commemorate the victims of domestic violence in Hungary. The basic feature of this demo is that every time the people are carrying red women dummies to symbolize those who died from domestic violence. This year was not exceptional in this sense.
