The January edition of the WAVE Network‘s magazine, Fempower Magazine, called “Tackling violence against women in Europe − achievements of the last 25 years and future challenges”, which addresses gender-based violence from the perspective of social changed produced through activism, hosts an article written by our colleague, Monica Tudorache, with the title “Can activism wake up Romania?”.
Her article briefly presents the abuse of the Romanian state in the Caracal case, by putting an emphasis on the advocacy measures of Necuvinte Association; she concludes through underlining the necessity of the watchdog measures in relation with the state institutions: “Romania needs fundamental changes; our anger targeted at these recent events has the purpose to make these changes happen. As Vaclav Havel simply put it, “there is a power of the powerless”. Romanian activists will continue to put pressure on State institutions to effect change.”
