Congratulations to Marleen Temmerman for winning the Marie Popelin award!

An award named after the first Belgian woman who studied law but was not allowed to practice it because she was a woman. Marie Popelin therefore dedicated her life to fight for women’s rights.

Marleen Temmerman received this award because “Her fight for women’s rights is also one against poverty, against dogmas and discrimination, for human rights. It is a battle that affects everyone and everyone can draw inspiration from it,” stated jury chairman Liesbeth Van Impe.
