Brussels, 18 December 2019 On the occasion of the International Day of Migrants, European Network of Migrant Women is inviting you to join us in commemorating the lives of migrant women and girls perished in the systemic and interpersonal male violence in Europe. DOWNLOAD PUBLICATION “Femicide is a grave and unacceptable violation of women’s and girls’ most basic human right to life. It is a leading cause of premature death of women globally. Although the rate of homicide has been on the decline across the world, the rate of femicide has remained the same, and, in some contexts, increased. According to Diana Russel who presented the term at the 1976 International Tribunal on Crimes against Women in Brussels, femicide applies to all forms of sexist killings “motivated by a sense of entitlement to or superiority over women, by pleasure or sadistic desires toward them, or by an assumption of ownership […]

#RadicalGirlsss #WhyRadical #RGWeekly 🔥🔥🔥 FR & ES BELOW When asked to write the first post, we took the task with so much enthusiasm, although we weren’t convinced about the different topics of discussion. Then, we spent a couple of hours writing down sentences about prostitution, feminism, solidarity and equality, but as the words were taking form on the document, it sounded so academic and very far from our own feelings. That’s why we found ourselves deleting different sentences and writing down disconnected thoughts around anger and vulnerability. Anger, as young women are trying so hard to resist, while fighting to ensure that our existence is recognized. We resist, even when the world doesn’t notice that we exist. Vulnerability, as days pass and we find ourselves compromising our dreams, and, inevitably, our own emotions. Anger, despair, a world in which girls are not free […]

FEMINIST FORUM, organised by European Parliament Coalition GUE/NGL BRUSSELS, 7 MARCH 2019 Noura Raad YOUNG MIGRANT WOMEN RESISTING PATRIARCHAL VIOLENCE “The topic of my speech today is about building a feminist generation, that will be a strong feminist generation. It is about the young migrant women who, like all women, are the victims of violence, linked to the fact that we still live in a world where men are in charge; a world of men’s domination. The young migrant women experience high pressure in the country of origin, and they also play a crucial role in fighting the male oppression. For this reason young women often leave the country of origin to study abroad, or to find a job, or to look for a better life, to flee men’s control. These women arrive with skills, capacity, and full of energy, and again, suddenly, are dominated by men. This is a […]
