For years, women have been fighting for self-determination, individual rights, equal treatment and freedom. But it’s still not good enough. This is evident from many current reports. That is why DOCK Haarlem, Haarlem Effect, Rooie Vrouwen, Haarlem in Dialogue, Drop Inn, Diaconie Haarlem, Rebup, Zonta, Safe Home, Alavitische Community Haarlem, Bureau Discrimination Affairs Kennemerland and Municipality of Haarlem are organizing together for the International Day of Women on Tuesday. March 8 between 6:45 p.m. and 10:00 p.m. meeting at Wijkcentrum de Wereld (Laan van Berlin 1) and debate at Pletterij (Lange Herenvest 122) between 7:00 p.m. and 9:30 p.m.
The motto of the day is V/M Solidaridad: ‘Beyond shame. Time for Action’, which focuses on issues such as domestic violence and offending behavior.

The March 8 Zuid-Kennemerland committee has launched a quick survey in and around Haarlem in which questions were asked about current experiences of (in)security. The results will be presented on International Women’s Day in Pletterij by Rebecca Rijnders van Volt. Kirsten van den Hul, politician and publicist, contributed to the discussion. She discusses how we can get ‘domestic’ violence higher on the agenda and out of the shadows. She pays attention to the various forms of violence, her personal experience with the issue, the political dimension and also what we can do as a society to improve the situation. Contributors to the panel discussion are Wianne Brandt from Safe Home, Attiya Gamri PvdA politician Bloemendaal, Cecile Masson coach and mentor, Margreet van den Bos autonomous feminist from Haarlem and Maaike Koper PvdA politician Zandvoort.
