Feminists in Riga invites you to join our annual International Women's Day celebration!

This year we will be hosting an informal meeting to talk about this year's international topic - #choosetochallenge

The meeting will take place on Monday, 8 March at 18:00.

Due to the current epidemiological situation in Latvia and governmental restrictions the event will be held on Zoom. We will send out the Zoom link to all participants before the event.

Emma Kjellstadli

Emma Kjellstadli is 22 and just started her 3rd semester in Medicine at Rīga Stradiņš University (RSU). She has been politically active since high school, and was even on her local municipality council Færder municipality, close to the city of Tønsberg - for a few years on behalf of her political party. To keep her political interest alive alongside her studies Emma joined the society Feminists in Riga, and is now its President.

While keeping two meters between us in our daily lives is possible, humanities and social science scholars are struggling to keep a critical distance from the pandemic as a research object, as it unfolds right in front of their eyes. To briefly sketch out the challenges, we talk to Dace Dzenovska, RSU Research Week keynote speaker and Associate Professor in the anthropology of migration at the University of Oxford.

Rīga Stradiņš University (RSU) has developed a dictionary of medical terms as a free smartphone app together with the Ventspils University of Applied Sciences. The dictionary targets international students studying medicine and dentistry in Latvia, medical practitioners, and translators. It is also useful for patients and can be used by Latvians when traveling, or by international patients who need to communicate with doctors in Latvia.
