Aletta Jacobs Prijs 2016 voor Petra Stienen

Rijksuniversiteit Groningen

The Aletta Jacobs Prize 2016 has been awarded to Petra Stienen. She has been awarded this prize for her gift in using her work to represent and transmit the voices of women who would otherwise not be heard. She has also successfully placed the topic of the position of women within a modern and international context. The Prize will be awarded on 7 March 2016 by the Rector Magnificus of the University of Groningen, Elmer Sterken. The announcement of the Prize coincides with the day in 1919 on which Queen Wilhelmina of the Netherlands signed the law that granted women full suffrage.

More information about the prize and the laureate can be found on the RUG website.
