Comic Book presentation "Birute Bebaime - the Fearless"
On the 23 August 2017, EIGE hosts a presentation on a special comic book: "Birute Bebaime - the Fearless" .
What is so special about it? It is dealing with a very sensitive topic: violence against women, in a unique way.
Domestic violence is a problem women face all over the world. Therefore, three social activists (Violeta Masteikienė, Modesta Kairytė, Marija Norvaišaitė) together with the well-known illustrator Akvilé Magicdust, came together to create the first educational comic book about forms of violence. The book seeks to raise awareness and educate about various forms of violence. It also helps to recognise them and addresses existing stigmas.
The story of "Birutė -The Fearless" could be a story of your friend, relative or neighbor, so we invite you to come by and listen to what has been silenced for too long.
The event will take place from 11:30 a.m. - 12:40 p.m. at EIGE´s entry point and will be introduced by EIGE´s expert on gender-based violence, Adriana Cusmir.
