                                                                                               29 November 2014, 20:00
                                                                            In front of National Theatre, Prishtina, Kosovo

On 29 Nov., in front of the National Theatre in Prishtina at 20:00, The Feminist Forum FemACT, a Kosova Women’s Network (KWN) supported initiative, will organize a march against sexual harassment in public spaces.
On 22 Nov. the Feminist Forum FemACT initiated a debate in social media as part of the campaign #TakeBackTheNight (#NataËshtëEJona), and this debate will continue until 29 Nov., when the march will take place.  
Through this campaign, the Feminist Forum FemACT has achieved to trigger different reactions: positive and negative. The unification and mobilizing of women and girls, men and boys, regardless of their age and profession, is very inspiring for everyone who supported #TakeBackTheNight by posting different quotations about sexual harassment on their Facebook statuses each day.  
We invite you to join us in the march that will be held on 29 Nov. at 20:00 in front of the National Theatre.
The Strategy of KWN includes a program for empowering young women and girls to participate more in the women’s movement. As part of this program, the group “femACT – we go beyond talking” was founded. It consists of many young feminists and activists from different regions of Kosovo. FemACT is open for everyone, regardless of age, gender, ethnicity or religion.  

FemACT is a platform where young women feminists and men feminists can share information and organize public actions towards gender equality. Also, it offers a space for discussions related to feminism, societal issues in Kosovo related to gender, as well as mobilizing for different causes of great importance. FemACT is a combination of a discussion group and action group. Its main mission is to raise awareness of the population and institutions about issues relating to gender equality present in Kosovo’s society.
