Also with us is Sarah Tekath, journalist, based in Amsterdam since 2014. She works for different medias like euronews, FAZ, neues deutschland and is the podcast host AMSTERDAMES and member of the network DEINE KORRESPONDENTIN.
“Shouldn’t we not be patient, shouldn’t we not be happy with that we have?
There is still be a big lack of understanding. I think the educational system still does not explain why the feminist movement was there. They tell pupils, women were not allowed ot vote, they were not allowed to go to school. But they don’t learn the mechanics of the discriminating system. How all the details are go to show their faces everywhere you go.” (Devika Partiman)
