ELTE Faculty of Social Sciences on strike against the government's ban on gender studies
Wednesday morning the Social Sciences Faculty of ELTE, one of Hungary's most prestigious universities, went on a solidarity and information strike because the government effectively banned gender studies.
According to the strike's facebook event, no classes were cancelled, but their topics were instead all changed to gender inequality, the independence of universities, and the violation of the freedom of education.
Other institutions joined the protest as well. Eduline.hu reports on a planned flashmob in front of Corvinus and CEU students and teachers will march on the Lágymányos campus of ELTE.
