10 years of feminist actions in the streets

Protest against the inclusion of rape in the new Mediation LawViolence is not entertainment!

București și Timișoara

Protest against the inclusion of rape among the crimes under the Mediation Law, which came into force on February 1, 2013. The mediation law required the parties to attend an information session on the "benefits of mediation" before the trial. After the protest, a Governmental Emergency Order was issued, by which the law was no longer applied in criminal cases; later on the law was declared unconstitutional by the Romanian Constitutional Court. Without the protests, feminists would not have noticed many other shortcomings of the law (applicable to labor disputes and many other areas).
