Freedom To Be A Woman

Year: 2019

Coordinator: Anastasia Levkova

Project description

Freedom To Be A Woman is a project jointly implemented by PEN Ukraine and the Ukrainian Core NGO, wherein invited female authors–notable writers, journalists and scholars–reflect on their understanding of what it means to be a free woman: in profession, in personal life, in Ukraine, in the world. What challenges does each encounter? Where do they manage to find support? Do cultural norms interfere with women’s freedom? Has this freedom become more tangible and visible recently? Media partner of the project: Ukrainian Pravda: Life.
