Unyielding Daughters and Resilience: A Triumph Against Violence on the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women

International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women

On the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, Naples bore witness to a momentous event. It’s a multidisciplinary event taking place at Foqus Fondazione Quartieri Spagnoli onlus, set to be a day of testimonies, arts, dance, reflection, and creativity to combat all forms of gender violence.

“Indomitable and Resistant Daughters” stands as a celebration of art, music, creative education workshops, performances, and discussions within the female universe. This event, with free entry, unfolded on November 25th, 2023, from 3:30 PM to 12:00 AM, at the evocative spaces of Foqus in the Quartieri Spagnoli of Naples.

The event aimed to stimulate discussions, foster reflections, build networks, and offer avenues for information about gender violence. It was more than a one-day affair, intending to extend the conversation throughout the year, engaging institutions, associations, centers, and professionals in the ongoing fight against gender violence.

Collaboration between associations and artists formed the bedrock of this event, aiming to raise awareness, foster solidarity networks, and shatter the walls of silence. The event drew together artists, photographers, actresses, DJs, experts in entrepreneurship and empowerment, communication specialists, and active participants in political life. They congregated for the groundbreaking talk titled “The City and the New Narrative of Female Feelings,” a gathering that lasted from afternoon till midnight.
