Backlash against LBT women in Poland : state violence and exiting of the Istanbul Convention

September 4 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

So-called “anti-gender backlash” movements have been spreading and rising across Europe, and resulting in a polarisation of pro-rights progressive countries on the one side and countries clinging to patriarchal, conservative and nationalistic values that they label “traditional and pro-family” on the other. What seemed at first to be a resistance to embracing human rights values, is now dangerously shifting into a proper back-sliding of human rights and democratic values. The Istanbul Convention has become a major battle ground and the sad illustration of this phenomenon.

This event, organised by the EuroCentralAsian Lesbian* Community, will count on the presence of the following speakers:

  • Terry Reintke MEP, Intergroup Co-Chair
  • Malin Björk MEP, Intergroup Vice-President
  • Antonina Lewandowska Coordinator of the ASTRA Network
  • Magdalena Dropek, Member of Kracow’s Council for Equal Treatment
  • Moderated by EL*C Board Member, Marame Kane
