Traditional Roma values ​​drag Roma women to the bottom - ending domestic violence

The emancipation does not go beyond Roma women when it comes to gender equality and struggle for a better socioeconomic status. But despite the array of existential issues affecting women and girls of this ethnic group in the struggle for equality with men, they are affected by the quiet and painful "traditional" domestic violence.

"The values ​​of the Roma community are limiting the Romani woman in her choices" and "It's small is the support Roma women receive in reducing domestic violence" were the two key theses that were debated in the last month as part of the project "Be a part of the community - Debate ! ".

These were the key issues debated by Tanja Krstevska, Almir Faslii, Arif Ademi, Cveta Angelova and Ornel Gani as affirmants and Ferzije Asanovska, Ajkan Malikoska, Jengis Berisha, Muhamed Etem and Nadir Usain as a negative team.

Participants in the debate gave their recommendations on what should be done by women, the non-governmental sector and the state in order to reduce the constraints that turned out to be not small, nor should they be negligible.

The young participants in the debate sent a powerful message that, however, the traditional values ​​that recognize the Roma community, which in exceptional situations are stereotypical, still "push" Romani women towards the bottom of social life, and domestic violence for which they receive minimal or most formal support paper seriously position it there - at the lowest desperate line in the system.

Roma settlement in Rijeka - Pehlin

Pahlin is a Roma settlement in Rijeka, and dates back to the 16th century. The original name was first Hosts and then Pehlin. In 1889, Dr. Matko Laginja, speaking about the name among other things, wrote:
 "Pahlin got the name from a settled family that lived there in the last century, but now there is no trace of that family.
These Peharlanci were foreigners (some Koteveri or some other Germans look like) in the service of state chambers that were then in the form of customs.
The ethnographer Ivo Jardash again wrote: "Pahlin was named after the Pahlichcheks, who during that period grew."
In the Austrianhungar rule, people were engaged in farming and viticulture, and they themselves carried these products to Rijeka and sold them.
Otherwise, in Rijeka there are three other Roma non-Roma Roma settlements where the Roma are well integrated.
