The gender equality both in public and private life is very important. Oana truly believes there is no room for compromise when it comes to combating violence against women and granting access to sexual and reproductive rights.
Oana Băluţă has a double belonging: academic and civic. She is an Associate Professor at the University of Bucharest and she is also a feminist activist. After more than eight years of experience leading a nongovernmental organization, in 2013 she chose to become a “freelance feminist”. Understanding the sources of women’s oppression, and working as a female public intellectual to promote the protection and empowerment of women has long been her vocation.
