Gender Equality Festival, how was the 13th edition?

It’s a wrap for the 13th Edition of the Gender Equality Festival held by A.L.E.G in Sibiu, between 11-13 October. The lively event bottled up the energy of more than 40 volunteers, gathered life lessons from notable guests like Romanian authors & feminists Andreea Paul & Mihaela Miroiu, international artists like Dan Perjovschi, and filled the city streets with both joyful and educational activities designed for a diverse audience that consisted of teachers and school councils, future journalists and high school students. Changing mentalities and fighting stereotypes is our superpower!

It’s More Than a Festival, See Why!

God,

It’s me, Mary, one of the 3 million Romanian women that occasionally deal with physical and sexual abuse. Some daily, rather than on occasions. And it’s not coming from some stranger or degenerate raised by gay parents. In my case, it was my husband, a “nice” boy that grew up in a family so traditional that his mom would give his dad all her earned money, without excuse.

The Gender Equality Festival is back, don’t miss it! 11-13 October
