Poland’s likely withdrawal from the Istanbul Convention, and violence against women: an interview with Gals4Gals Łódź


CN: this podcast episode contains discussion of homophobia, transphobia and misogyny.

As Poland’s government comes one step closer to achieving its stated goal of withdrawing from the Istanbul Convention, Politika News speaks to Gals4Gals Łódź. Last year, the feminist movement organised the city’s largest protest since the hunger demonstrations of 1981, against the government’s near-total abortion ban. Today, they prepare for the next stage of the long fight ahead against an authoritarian regime bent on making its female citizens submit.
