Feminist Solidarity Day with Ukraine 2022
On August 26th, In Feminis Veritas will be hosting a Solidarity Day with Ukraine in partnership with Vitsche and the Junge DGO. The Solidarity Day will focus on Ukraine and the impact the war has had on FLINTA* people.
Solidarity Day with Ukraine will be a multidisciplinary event, featuring both art and short-form panel discussions. The night will begin with a vernissage of the art exhibition and feature Ukrainian artists from our weekly Artist’s Spotlight campaign on Instagram. In a series of short- forum panel discussions we will discuss topics ranging from the role of women in the Ukrainian diaspora in creating solidarity movements to international law and the prosecution of wartime sexual violence. To close out the evening, there will be a live protest performance and musical guests.
Entrance to the event is free, however, we will be raising money for the Ukrainian feminist initiative СФЕРА (Sphere, Women Association), so all donations are welcome! Funds will also be collected through a silent auction of the pieces on display at the art exhibition, with half of the proceeds going to the artists themselves and the other half to СФЕРА.
We hope to see you on August 26th and that you will join us in solidarity with Ukraine!

Justice for Survivors: International Law and Wartime Sexual Violence in Ukraine

In a discussion with experts on international law and sexual violence, this panel will explore topics such as how wartime sexual violence is prosecuted in the international court system and how our international institutions can become more effective at prosecuting these crimes. Additionally, how national laws can be strengthened to ensure critical care for refugees who are the victims of wartime sexual violence, such as access to health care and mental health resources?
