Feminist cooperative Almena works on the project ‘Feminist shelter: Let’s transform together’, and its main objective is to contribute to the well-being of women, teenagers and girls applying for asylum on the border between Mexico and Guatemala.
Female genital mutilation is a form of physical and symbolic violence that denies the ability to think and decide, to feel and to be, which causes pain and death and sets back those societies that practice it.
The situation of women who suffer from male violence worsens during the state of alarm. For this reason, the Catalan Institute of Women and the entities reinforce the resources for victim attention programs.
At a global level, women have a greater presence in associations working on care and services to others, as well as cultural and social ones. But then we see a much lower participation of women in unions or political associations.
We need a Feminist Europe that will safeguard the human rights of women, because we are persons, with the right to live our lives freely, free of violence and in a society where everyone has equal opportunities and free of privileges.
