ImpactWho Cares

Dutch women are pissed off. 23-year-old Geerte Piening was fined 90 Euros last week for peeing in public. Arguing that there weren't enough public toilets for women, she took her case to court. Conclusion? A huge feminist outcry in the country of tulips. 


Our series WHO CARES? is all about (g)local debates. What's going on in Poland that no Spanish person has ever heard about? What's blowing up the internet in the Netherlands and not in France? Well, as a European magazine, we care. WHO CARES? brings you news you haven't seen on your newsfeed yet.
