International Women’s Day is more topical than ever this year. Sexually transgressive behavior is everywhere in our society. On March 5, you can demonstrate in Amsterdam to draw attention to the importance of sexual and reproductive rights, the climate and the upcoming municipal elections, and to oppose violence and sexually transgressive behavior. Join the Women’s March on March 5 and join Atria in the Stop Femicide! block, where we draw attention to our Stop Femicide! petition. Come en masse to Dam Square and show the Netherlands that gender-based violence must be tackled now! Men can also commit to a society where people are not oppressed. At the Atria book club on March 7 we discussed men who are good by historian, professor, author and feminist Ivan Jablonka.
On March 8, we will launch an educational platform developed in collaboration with the F-Site educational platform for high school students on the Black, Migrant, and Refugee Women’s Movement.
