ROMA ACTIVISTS PURSUE JUSTICE FOR ILLEGALLY STERILIZED ROMA WOMEN

Published: 07 / 23 / 2021 12:32

On 9 - 11 July 2021, we met in Košice with a group of committed Roma women, with whom we have been pursuing justice for illegally sterilized Romani women for a long time.

At the meeting we planned together:

  • specific actions towards the responsible state authorities in order to ensure that injured sterilized women are finally compensated;
  • a joint podcast with a local NGO - Women's Circles to make the stories and experiences of Roma women more visible to the general public;
  • we were greeted from a distance (online streams) by our guests Elena Gorolová - a Roma activist from the Czech Republic, Zuzana Krišková from Women's Circles and Barbora Bukovská - the founder of our NGO, who have been supporting us in our efforts for a long time.

We will carry out our plans together in the near future. Follow us on social networks and our website.
