International interdisciplinary conference: Women’s rights and violence in the contemporary world

30-31 March 2017, University of Gdańsk, Poland

Women’s rights were never respected in the past. And they are not respected today, even though it seems that many things have been changed and that we are now much more aware of the gender inequalities than our parents were. In our crazy world increasingly accepting all kinds of extremism and fundamentalism, there is less and less place for an open and honest discussion about women’s needs and expectations. During our interdisciplinary conference we would like to look at various manifestations of violence and women’s rights violation in the contemporary world, and also at the possible ways of counteracting such phenomena. We will describe them in political, social, psychological, cultural and many other terms. We also want to devote considerable attention to how the situation of women’s rights is represented in artistic practices: in literature, film, theatre or visual arts. [more]
