** AmsterDames Announcement **
Dear listeners, first of all, let me wish you a happy, healthy and successful new year 2023. I hope that this year is going to be everything that you need it and want it to be. Second of all, thank you very much for being such a strong supporter of my work and of all the amazing women that have spoken on this podcast. I greatly appreciate every single person that has listened to one or more episodes, has subscribed to this podcast and has shared it with the world. AmsterDames will take a bit of a break – two months to be precise – as I will be working on a project outside of the Netherlands. But don’t worry, AmsterDames will come back, probably in March. Until then, take good care of yourself and if you come across more inspiring women in the Netherlands that need to be interviewed for AmsterDames, please let me know.

55: Abortion And Contraceptives In The Netherlands - Eva De Goeij
55: Abortion And Contraceptives In The Netherlands - Eva De Goeij
For months and years even, the right to have an abortion has caused heated discussions all over the world. In Poland, women took to the streets to demand their right to have an abortion. In the US, this right was recently taken away from them. But even though in the Netherlands, abortions are theoretically legal and there are abortion clinics available at least in the cities, not everything goes smoothly. Conservatives pro-life voices have become louder in the past years and the access to an abortion is not the easy path it seems to be. Ava wants to change that. This organisation stands up for people‘s interests regarding abortion and contraception.

54: A Law Clinic For Women - Rajae Azaroual
For those among us who do not have a law degree, legal issues can be quite overwhelming. But it is still very likely that we will have to face them at some point in our life. Maybe after being fired, getting divorced and when we wish to take someone to court who caused us harm. Then it is important to know our rights. But if we don’t know them, there is a place that can help. It is called the vrouwenrechtswinkel. Raja Azaroual is a lawyer, working at the vrouwenrechtswinkel and today she is going to explain the legal situation of women in the Netherlands and what still needs to improve. Additional info: Vrouwenrechtswinkel is an initiative of Bureau Clara Wichmann together with the Law Hub of the University of Amsterdam and is subsidized by the city of Amsterdam www.clara-wichmann.nl www.vrouwenrechtswinkelamsterdam.nl www.siliconenzaak.nl In case you want to deep-dive into the topic of the Dutch afstandsmoeders check out my podcast project Separated By Force for which I interview mothers, children, lawyers, staff of the mother and baby homes etc. https://open.spotify.com/show/4VIT9j67QZkkyoLZK1KG10 AmsterDames Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/amsterdamespodcast/ AmsterDames Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/AmsterDamesPodcast/

Food always brings people together. During a family dinner, a religious holiday or birthdays. Also, living in a foreign country, most of us have probably experienced the feeling of loneliness in one way or another. So why not bringing these two things together: food and making new friends?

#49: Can Detention Houses Replace Prisons? - Veronique Aicha
There are certain rules that our society follows that we accept as a given. We do not think much about it. One of these rules is the following one: A person who commits a crime goes to prison. But what if prisons didn't exist? Could you imagine a world without prisons? Rescaled most certainly can, because they are challenging the concept of prisons, offering a replacement: small detentions houses. Veronique Aicha works for Rescaled Netherlands and she explains what this movement wants to achieve.  AmsterDames Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/amsterdamespodcast/ AmsterDames Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/AmsterDamesPodcast/ Website Rescaled: www.rescaled.org Email Rescaled Netherlands: info@rescaled.nl

#48: NFTs And Peregrines - Mickelle Weber
Moving to a new place is always a challenge. Especially, when it is a new country. We need to figure out how things work, we need to find a home, apply for a job or fix our health insurance. When all of this is done, then there is the next step. Get to know the locals and find new friends. Often, we find our people in other expats. When you take this sense of community and you through NFTs and web3 into the mix, then you get house of Peregrine.

#47: The Non Native Natives - Belle Phromchanya & Darunee Terdtoontaveedej
Art and creative work show who we are. They show how we see the world, they show our ideas and our passion. But also where we come from. But unfortunately, there are still parts of the world that we do not get to see very often in art. Three designers and curators wanted to change that. This is how Non Native Native was born. Non Native Native is co-founded by designers and curators: Belle Phromchanya, Darunee Terdtoontaveedej, and Honey Kraiwee.

#46: "We Can't Just Talk About Sexual Abuse. We Need To Do Something" - Sara Alaoui Dekker
Sexual abuse is inarguably a traumatizing experience. Often, it takes the victims a long time to be able to talk about what has been done to them. If they manage at all. But if they speak up and search for help, they often find themselves stuck in a bureaucratic system, long waiting lists and insufficient support. But there is one woman who wanted to change this system and she founded Stichting Together we rise.

#44: Stolen Children - Eugénie Smits van Waesberghe
Today’s episode is about the Dutch afstandsmoeders. Between 1956 and 1984, thousands of unmarried women were forced to give up their babies against their will. Their babies were taken away from them the moment they were born and some of the mothers never got to see their children ever again. Until today, the investigation and the compensation of it’s victims – the mothers and the children – in the Netherlands have been rather slow. Dr. Eugenie Smit van Waesberghe is an afstandskind herself and for years and years, she is all over the Dutch media to draw attention to the cases of afstandsmoeders and afstandskinderen.

If you think back on your childhood days, did you play with dolls? What did they look like? Very much like you? But for many children around the world, this is not the case. Because dolls are very often white and able-bodied. But what about dolls with Afro hair, male dolls or dolls with a certain skin condition or Down syndrome? Those can be found in a little shop in Amsterdam Noord, called coloured goodies. Because founder Ellen Brudet knows very well what it was like as a child to not feel represented.

Every day, we are confronted with news. Often so many of them, that it can be quite overwhelming. But it seems, that we often only hear the stories of the same groups of people over and over again. In our world, there are still many people who don’t get a chance to share their stories, experiences and their view of the world. Mira Kinn wanted to change that and has founded the platform correspondents of the world where people from all over the world get the chance to be heard.

When you think of design, what is it that comes to your mind? Maybe something practical that you use every day? Or maybe something very technical around electronic devices? Shahar Livne is a conceptual material designer and what she wants to achieve with her designs is that people listen to a story. But not only her personal ones. She also tells stories about places, cultures, and relations with resources in the past, present, and future. Her work combines biology with science and philosophy and focuses on material research. Some of her projects even deal with obscure materials such as blood.  Shahar Livne LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/shahar-livne-50474b122 Shahar Livne Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/_shaharlivnedesign_/ Shahar Livne website: https://www.shaharlivnedesign.com/ AmsterDames Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/amsterdamespodcast/ AmsterDames Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/AmsterDamesPodcast/

#40: Racism And Discrimination In The Netherlands - Sarita Bajnath
"I don't see color. I only see people" The Netherlands, or at least the city of Amsterdam, prides itself on being a cultural melting pot. Almost 180 nationalities live here. But is life the same for all of them? People of color, Muslims or disabled people experience situations in their daily life that for example straight white people cannot imagine or are simply not aware of. Sarita Bajnath is a diversity and inclusion coach, who offers unconscious bias training for us to understand life experiences that lie beyond our own.

#39: Orphan Trafficking, Voluntourism And The White Saviour Complex - Kristen Cheney
Volunteering has become a huge market. Many young people take a gap year to work with children in Africa, Asia or Latin America - very often in orphanages. On social media, they post pictures of themselves with a group of happy children. But unfortunately, it is mostly the volunteers who benefit from this experience. Agencies who organize these volunteering trips exploit the children and the young adults who are very often uninformed.  Kristen Cheney is an expert on volunteering, voluntourism, international adoption and the white saviour complex and in this episode, she explains what is currently wrong in all these broken systems that exist worldwide.

On TV, in magazines and on social media, we are always encouraged to consume. People are standing in line to get the latest iPhone. Physical fights on Black Friday are a very common thing. The fashion industry is no exception there. Stores offer several new collections of clothes multiple times a year, but the clothes we buy for cheap prices usually never last very long. The term for this is fast fashion and it turns out to be extremely harmful to the environment but also to the people that work in this industry. My guests for today are Yophi Ignacia and Dieuwertje de Wagenaar work as country coordinators for the organization Fashion Revolution which wants to change that.

She has founded Victory art, that strongly focuses on central and eastern european contemporary art. In this episode, Viktória Pikovská talks about the impact the Sowjet Union had on eastern european art, female artists being objectified and an inspriring project called Majak.  AmsterDames Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/amsterdamespodcast/ AmsterDames Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/AmsterDamesPodcast/ Victory Art Website: https://www.victoryart.eu/ Victory Art Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/victoryart.eu/ Project Majak: https://www.victoryart.eu/majak.xhtml

#29: "There is a fire, but nobody cares" - Tasha Arlova
During the summer of 2020, Belarus, its president Lukashenka and police brutality against peaceful protestors were all over the world’s news. Since then, the country has disappeared from the media. The world is looking in another direction now. But that doesn’t mean that the situation in Belarus has changed. Human rights defenders are in detention, members of the opposition are sentenced to multiple years in prison and free media has pretty much disappeared. Tasha Arlova is a filmmaker from Belarus, currently living in the Netherlands and she uses her art to remind us about what is still happening in her country.   AmsterDames Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/podcastamsterdames AmsterDames Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/amsterdamespodcast/ AmsterDames Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/AmsterDamesPodcast/

One character is parting the Netherlands and its society. His name is Zwarte Piet. Is he just the amusing, friendly helper of Sinterklaas or is he a slave and a caricature of a Black person? For years, Anti Zwarte Piet activists call for either a removal of the character or at least an alteration to make him less hurtful to Black people. Pro Zwarte Piet Activists fear the destruction of Dutch culture and the end of festive moments for children. Stacey Lamptey grew up in Belgium before her family moved to Ghana and she knows that Zwarte Piet can be traumatizing for Black children, for example when they are told that they look like Zwarte Piet. In this episode, she talks about her own experience, her activism and her organization Black Ladies of Groningen.

#27: Catcalls of Amsterdam - Paula Folino & Leonoor van Vliet
It is a situation most women have experienced more than once in their life. A man they do not know makes a comment on their looks, their body or their clothes on the street. In English, this is called catcalling, the Dutch term however refers to intimidation on the street. The organization Catcalls of Amsterdam wants to make this intimidation visible and has found a special way to do so. In this episode, Paula Folino and Leonoor van Vliet from Catcalls of Amsterdam will explain how they do this and why catcalling and making a compliment is not the same thing.  AmsterDames Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/podcastamsterdames AmsterDames Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/amsterdamespodcast/ AmsterDames Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/AmsterDamesPodcast/ Instagram Catcalls of Amsterdam: https://www.instagram.com/catcallsofams/

#24: International Adoption or Child Trafficking? - Dilani Butink
When she was only a few weeks old, Dilani Butink was adopted by a Dutch family and was brought from Sri Lanka to the Netherlands. Years later, she found out that the information in her birth certificate is not correct. Was Dilanis's mother forced to give her baby away, was Dilani stolen from her mother or even sold to a Dutch adoption agency? She is not the only one with such a mysterious case. From the 70's on, about 40.000 children from Indonesia, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh or South America were brought to the Netherlands by adoption agencies. Now, Dilani Butink wants to know the truth and is sueing the Dutch state to finally stand up to it's responsibility.  AmsterDames Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/podcastamsterdames AmsterDames Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/amsterdamespodcast/ AmsterDames Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/AmsterDamesPodcast/ Pink Cloud Photo Project: https://www.instagram.com/pink.cloud.project/ Dilani Photography: https://www.instagram.com/dilani_photography/ Pink Cloud Podcast: https://open.spotify.com/show/6smjdQ1lpEAjL1gvDKxE0s?si=81540bc8b0d5427f

Between 1956 and 1984 thousands of unmarried pregnant women were forced to give their babies away. Yet, many people in the Netherlands have never heard about this. Neither did freelance journalist and writer Christel Don, until she heard the story of one of these women and decided to write a book about the Dutch Afstandsmoeders to get attention for the injustice that has been done. But during the process of writing this book, she came across another dark chapter of Dutch history that also nobody ever talks about...
