NO APOLOGIES. Being a contemporary woman in contemporary Riga.

8 March is a day when many Western communities try praising women professionals and discuss topics related to issues and challenges women still face every day (apart from men). On the contrary, many from the East (including post-Soviet countries) get away by handing out scissored flowers or organize chip'n'dale striptease to soothe and smoother any feminine appetite for gender appreciation. Instead of mansplaining on 8 March, we gave a word to six women in Riga to comment on what life looks and feels like when passing before their eyes instead. To describe the way they want, they way it affects their professional and private life, the way it feels comfortable and still substantial.
