As for the theme of the second edition of the Cafe Talk competition, it will be about the phenomenon of “violence against women” in Tunisia due to the spread of this fact in our society and the failure of all parties to find solutions for the protection of women. So iiDebate and Café Talk team has choosen this phenomenon to be the topic of the second edition of the competition in order to come up with simple and realistic solutions where the 10 teams will organize 5 cafe talks each on the following topics:

Women in the political scene between absent and marginalized

– Rural women between marginalization and discrimination

– Violence against women inside  the family

– Role of legislators and civil society in reducing violence against women

– Women victims of sexual harassment in Public transportation

Then the  teams will come up with project ideas that represent their own solutions to the problem of “violence against women” in Tunisia and compete with the rest of the teams to win the prize money to finance their project.
