nine hundred eighty s. now the idea of introducing a quota is attracting growing support. for claudia looking me its over. after four years as a member of parliament she has to clear out her desk like many of her female colleagues partly because her cvo party did so badly and partly because women lost out in their own party rankings. we have a core and that says everyone should be fire woman as well every said as you know the others seem to be the thing is that in most people's heads the lists together chris percentages becomes the maximum number they say one two three four five six that's the next women seat seven eight nine that has to be a woman where does this leave us. women's participation in the german parliament is truly not a success story for three decades they struggled along with less than ten percent

it was the appearance of the green party in the early eighty's and later the left parties entry into the bundestag that changed the dynamics partly thanks to that quota recently some thirty seven percent of german m.p.'s were women. unfortunately i think that in society and in the media there was this idea that everything is ok now one third of the members of parliament are female and we have ministers we have a female chancellor but this is misleading because the percentage of women in parliament does not reflect women's share of society which is over half of the population. and even in the conservative parties women are beginning to get angry although most men oppose it they are pushing for a quota. many men want to protect the privileges they have as no reason for them to support these new regulations if they get implemented then men will be reducing their own chances of

a mania. this is also how even under a cast by zani came here two weeks ago with their children. they are still shook up from the dangerous passage from istanbul. we were afraid to set off after seeing what shape the boat was in i got mad at my husband we watched parts of the boat fall off but it was too late the waves were very high and water into the boat we were so scared. for several weeks the romanian coast guard has been encountering overcrowded smuggling boats day and night within a month nearly five hundred people from iraq iran and syria have fled across the black sea to remain ian the coast guard is concerned a new so-called blue. the route could emerge from turkey to remain. a bias hanis i'm glad they survived they hadn't been aware of the danger. all that mattered was to leave turkey towards europe they tell us the black sea route is an inside tip.

order to. help much that we came through turkey because it's easy to start from there and because many human traffickers are there. on the front walk on the turkish police don't do anything about it they're bribed by the smugglers. there is a good way but having arrived in romania the human trafficking is all rested their boats confiscated by the remaining coastguard held together by nothing more than rust numbers of decommissioned turkish fishing on tourist boats are rising. and now arriving at the ports of constant is a result of european refugee politics according to refugee expert and. desperate people always find a way but. the fact that we have these ships on the black sea shows that the typical routes are shut down and are no longer an option on the. internet that swine increasing number of refugees on landing in constanza and many remain ins are
