[Brussels, 27 September 2017] The European Women’s Lobby (EWL) is delighted to announce that we will be taking part in FiLiA (formerly Feminism in London) on 14-15 October at the Institute of Education in London. The conference will host an array of events and workshops on various topics from feminist art; violence against women and girls; women in environmental, political and judicial spaces; and practical sessions on feminist activism and its application.
The EWL is excited to be moderating and speaking at a workshop entitled Trading in Youth: From Male Violence to Activism where the panel will focus on the exploitative system of prostitution and how the abolitionist movement fights against the commodification of women and the youth.
Our member the European Network of Migrant Women will also be organising two exciting events over both days of the conference. The first will pay tribute to revolutionary women as October marks the 100th anniversary of the Russian Revolution. On Saturday afternoon a panel entitled Sexual Exploitation of Women: Where misogyny and Racism Meet will give a platform to African, Russian, Middle Eastern and South Asian Women’s rights activists to critically discuss the issues within a global context.
