The Friedrich Ebert Foundation has launched a call for applications for a writer-in-residence which is open exclusively for women. The call’s topic is women’s status and the residence is forecasted to take place in the city of Timimoun (Algeria) from 1st until 12th November 2017.
The call states that "The idea is to enable each participant to explain their experiences, in order to denounce violence and harassment suffered by women, and so, through writing as a means of delivering, of dissemination and as a means of fighting".
Participants aged between 20 and 60 years old will engage in the residence in order to denounce injustice. This women’s residence will be led by the writer and producer Habiba Djahnine. Inscriptions are open until 20th August 2017.
This platform is part of the Axis 1 "Strengthening the capacities of equality actors" of the Priority Solidarity Fund "Women for the future in the Mediterranean" funded by the French Ministry of Europe and Foreign Affairs and led by the European Institute of the Mediterranean, in the framework of the project “Developing Women's Empowerment” labelled by the Union for the Mediterranean.
