A Feminist Struggle. The Importance of Humanism

Activity: Talk or presentationLecture and oral contribution


There is a feminist struggle in our community. A humanitarian crisis. We need to create more respect for feelings, to recognize feelings and make room for diversity in humanity. We must beware not to give in to populism, but embrace humanism. I'm talking to professor Michelle Pace from Roskilde University, Denmark.
Michelle grew up in Malta, in a strict catholic culture. She had to find her own way, lived in England for several years and is now living in Denmark teaching global studies at the university. Michelle has a profound understanding of different cultures and the importance of embracing diversity.
