Are the events of Cologne used as an excuse for more violence? What do racism and islamophobia have to do with feminism? And can you really be a feminist if you are Muslim?

The numerous sexual assaults against women on the night of New Year’s Eve in Cologne and other German cities have sparked a big debate in the last months. Unfortunately the argument has been hijacked by the far-right, distorted and used to justify the anti-immigration agenda.

The discussion revolves around hatefully attacking immigrants and European muslims rather than the effective measures for the victims of sexual assault.
Let's refocus the discussion!

Are the events of Cologne used as an excuse for more violence? What do racism and islamophobia have to do with feminism?
