Months after Poland announced its withdrawal from the Istanbul Convention, Turkey is now doing the same. How do we continue fighting for women and LGBTI rights amid increasing right-wing and anti-democratic backlash? Join us in conversation with MEP Terry Reintke!

About the Event:

Over the past several months in Turkey, the feminist agenda has mostly been shaped by the discussions over the withdrawal from the Istanbul Convention. We are going to discuss the situation, its effects, and the Green response with MEP Terry Reintke.


This is the first of five Green Feminist Talks as part of the Feminist Policies in Green Politics project, where we speak to female politicians and activists to inspire and strengthen the green feminist movement, and build cross-border support and solidarity. The Talks will be spotlighting key issues and current situations of women and LGBTI+ movements across Europe.

Besides these Green Feminist Talks, the project also features a series of Green Feminist Meetings – where we invite experts and stakeholders to delve further into specific policy areas like energy, economics, or food & agriculture.


Terry Reintke is a German politician and has been an MEP for the Greens/EFA since 2014. Before that, she was a spokesperson for the Federation of Young European Greens from 2011 to 2013. She is a strong feminist advocate and campaigns for the rights of women and LGBTI people across Europe, standing firm against anti-democratic backlash to fight for a progressive and fair Europe.
