As you may know, the right-wing Austrian Chancellor was ousted from office via a no-confidence vote from Parliament after his party faced a scandal involving a Video of another official in Ibiza promising favorable treatment for government contracts to the daughter of a Russian oligarch. Sound shady? Yep, it's super shady and the people and other government officials did the one thing they could to fight this corruption, they decided to start over. This is how you oust a corrupt government. Join us in our conversation about the political situation in Austria and what it means for the future of feminist politics.
