The Hungarian Roma Women: A Multimedia ‘Prez’entaion

by Dmitrii Romanovski (Moldova), Una Cilic (Bosnia and Herzegovina) and Luisa Dos Santos (Brazyl)

Criminals, seductive women, beggars. These are a few examples of stereotypes about Roma people, the largest minority in Hungary, that are frequently reinforced by society and media. Reports show that Hungarian Roma are discriminated against in education, housing, employment and access to health care and prejudice is a great barrier for them to secure their rights. But some Roma women, who are in a particularly vulnerable situation, think that they can’t wait for the government to act on their behalf. Check out the Prezi for a multimedia story on Roma Women.
