Supporting Roma feminism in Spain

The Agency attended the first Congress of Roma feminism in Madrid from 17 to 18 November.

The Congress was attended by Roma women and men from different parts of Spain, and was organised by an organisation of young Roma feminists with the support of the Madrid City Council, the Open Society and FRA. The Agency has been supporting, as part of its Local Engagement for Roma Inclusion project, the preparation of the congress and previous meetings with Roma women in different cities across Spain. The project in Spain focused on gender equality and included the development of several videos on gender-based violence and women’s rights.
