"Every woman has to decide alone by herself if she wants to work outside the house. It’s not like five hundred years ago, now we are in the 2000s. Here everybody can go to school, not just stay at our towns, cook for our family, and be with the kids. If we want our kids to have better future, me as a mother I think that every woman should go to school."

Sign Petition for the Declaration of the 'International Roma Women's Day'

On the 8th, 9th and 10th of October, 2010 the “1st International Roma Women Congress: The Other Women”, was held in Barcelona, Spain. Other women are non-academic women who are usually not present in spaces for dialogue, debate and knowledge. United in this conference, more than 300 Roma women from different countries created a dream: that the 8th of October be declared the "International Roma Women's Day", in recognition of the work of all Roma Women as a driving force behind  social change and transformation.
