EN Harassed, insulted and raped – this happens every day for thousands of women working in the tomato and strawberry fields of Spain, Italy and Morocco. The vegetables and fruits they harvest are sold in supermarkets all over Europe.

The Red Gold project is the result of over 2 years’ investigation and documentation work, with interviews of hundreds of women working in the fields, as well as of trade unions and associations’ representatives.

The evening will take the form of a dialogue with Stefania Prandi, journalist and photographer, author of the book Oro rosso (Settenove ed. Italy) and co-author with journalist Pascale Müller of a multi-awarded reportage on the same theme, published on BuzzFeed and Correctiv.

The programme includes the screening of the short La Giornata directed by Pippo Mezzapesa (2017, in Italian with English subtitles), videos and photos, plus a Q/A session with the audience.

Expressions of Humanity

The power of arts and human stories to raise awareness and achieve social change: it is the red thread of the new cycle of events proposed by Time For Equality. It will focus on important human rights questions of our time, such as migration, increasing inequalities, trafficking and new forms of slavery, violence against women and children - and on the response of our society.

Each event will consist of a film screening, a theatre piece or a book presentation to set the context. It will include testimonials of inspirational speakers and a discussion with the audience.

True to the motto of Time For Equality "Learn, Share, Act", our initiatives not only sensitise the public but also motivate them to answer the question "What can I do?" by proposing a project, a campaign, an action through which each one of us can be part of the solution to build a fairer and better world; a world in which we would like to live.
