10 years of feminist actions in the streets

Anti-discrimmination flashmob at the Cotroceni presidential palace

19 June 2013
Palatul Cotroceni, București

The statements by President Traian Băsescu that sparked the protest: "Girls, bear children, because it is a patriotic act, after all (...) How in God’s name can a Roma woman have five or six children, but the Romanian woman can't? It's true, "She is not a manager, the Roma woman (...) We have to think differently as well. Maybe motherhood is one of the fundamental missions of a woman, it seems to me".
