Speaker: Adis Arapović
Venue: Museum of literature and performing arts BiH, Sime Milutinovića Sarajlije 7, Sarajevo.
We would like to invite you to a new lecture in the second series of lectures Someone said feminism?, which will be given by Adis Arapović on the topic „Ideological spectrum and the gender issue in political life in BiH“. This session will be hosted by Sarajevo open centre with support of Friedrich Ebert Foundation in Bosnia and Herzegovina and media coverage by Dani magazine.
During the session, relationships between the ideological profiles of the overall political parties and their representatives and the representation of women in decision-making positions, which are positions of power, will be discussed. Has BiH profiled its political spectrum, is there the existence of political/social liberalism and conservatism in BiH and how these questions determine the gender issue in BiH, are some of the questions that will be raised. What is the political power of women in governmental institutions, political parties and public administration – as places of legitimate and institutionalized power? The lack of democracy within political parties determined the suppression of gender issues at the overall social discourse.
