A feminist exploration #8 | Gender-based violence, care provisions and resilience during Covid-19 in Greece

Watch the event recording.

Join us for the next edition of “A feminist exploration” – this time, we will shed light on gender-based violence, care provisions and resilience during the Covid-19 Pandemic in Greece. Together with Eirini Avramopoulou, Assistant Professor of Social Anthropology at Panteion University Athens, we will explore the intertwining of institutional structures and affective relations of care addressing gender-based violence during Covid-19 in Greece.

Care has become a measurable phenomenon connected to people’s individual adherence to social-distancing orders to “protect” the self and society, while the healthcare system fails to meet the pandemic’s exigencies. Contrary to those public discourses, we will have a look at the obscured complexities of care provision, the injustices, and the multiple forms that violence has taken in the name of or as a consequence of Covid-19 safety.

How do violence and care intersect? How do safety, home, and social distancing – mediated by gender, race, sexuality, religion or class shape differential presents and unequal futures?

Join us for this European Feminist Platform discussion powered by and created for feminist scholars, activists and policy makers – in Europe and beyond on Thursday, 18 November 2021.


Welcome by Helen Lessing, sustainability and queer feminist activist, Member of the European Feminist Platform.
