The EU political landscape and public sphere still grapples with the diminished presence of women and historically underrepresented groups. Gender-based violence, racism and lesbophobia remain persistent obstacles, undermining their safety and security as well as sidelining them from pivotal decision-making roles. It is essential that we uncover the mechanisms jeopardizing democracy and reinforcing patriarchy by means of analysis and dialogue in a Lesbiennale of art, culture, activism and politics.
