76. Women’s Assembly at the ESF

To our friends in feminist movements, trade unions and European social movements,
We are writing to keep you up to date on the preparation of the Women's Day of the fourth ESF which will be held in Athens in April 2006 and to share with you some reflections and ideas.
First of all, the preparation process of the fourth ESF is far from satisfactory. No decision has as yet been taken on the site of the ESF. This failure is blocking the whole organization process (we can't print posters, etc) and does not allow us to work in any practical sense on the setup of the Women's Day. Moreover, it would be better to postpone the date may for a few weeks to avoid coincidence with the Italian elections (9 April).

77. A Polish-Armenian seminar

A Polish-Armenian seminar "Women in Transition Period Armenian and Polish Experience" took place in two cities in Armenia between Nov. 16-19.

Despite numerous differences in the experience of transition processes in Armenia and Poland, closer investigation reveals that similarities exist, especially as regards gender issues. It therefore seems worth creating conditions to share good practices and building cooperation between our countries. The meeting was coordinated by Dr Jemma Hasratian, from Gender Studies from Yerevan University and Dr Beata Kowalska, Jagiellonian University, Poland and funded by the British Embassies in Poland and in Armenia.

During the third and most recent session of the Institute in Varna, Bulgaria(October 1-5,2005), participants engaged in three days of intensive small group collaboration - working on arguments for two hypothetical women's rights cases before the European Court of Human Rights. Both hypotheticals involved multiple issues of trafficking, sex slavery,rape, domestic violence, emergency contraception, sex discrimination, right to privacy, and ethnic discrimination. Institute participants composed an application to the court, responded to state answers to that application, and participated in a moot court session where they argued both sides of the case.
