Women in EU Politics: Part III – Young Feminists

Women in EU Politics: Part III – Young Feminists


with Miette Dechelle


Millennials are stereotyped in the media as shallow and detached from networks and institutions.   Instead of being active in civil society, they have a sense of entitlement and are narcissistic.  But is this true?

What do millennials think about women in EU politics?

What motivates a young person to become a feminist and activist?

Who are the Young feminist of today?

And what role do they see the media playing in supporting values of equality and social justice?

Astute Radio’s Miette Dechelle started a conversation with 4 young feminists to explore what makes them tick.

Together, over 3 episodes, we will find out what the next generation of feminist leaders think about the politics, media and the future of feminism.

In the first episode Miette started a conversation with Julie Chrétiennot and Olga Frańzak at the EWL young feminist summer school (AGORA), in Brussels.

In this first episode, find out what Julie and Olga think about feminism, politics and the media.  Is there any hope for an equal future?
