I spoke to FiLiA Spokeswoman and Trustee Raquel Rosario Sanchez about the forthcoming event, and why it is so important for feminists from around the world get to meet up in person.
Raquel is a writer, campaigner and researcher from the Dominican Republic. Her academic research focuses on men who pay for sex. As a writer and campaigner, her advocacy focuses on ending male violence against girls and women. In recent years, much of her work has focused on promoting and/or strengthening sex-based rights on an international level.
