Following the actions and remarks of Sarah Braasch and her alleged membership of Ni Putes Ni Soumises, the association wishes to clarify its position by means of the statement below.
As a reminder, on Monday, May 7, this openly racist and Islamophobic individual, is alleged to have objected to the presence of one of her fellow colleagues of the University of Yale, in the United States, on the ground of his skin color.
Stéphanie Rameau, president of NPNS, says:
“The association Ni Putes Ni Soumises strongly condemns the actions and remarks made by Sarah Braasch at the evening of Monday, May 7, 2018 at Yale University. She was a member of the NPNS association for a few months between 2009 and 2010. However, since she left eight years ago, she is no longer part of our membership and can not claim anything on behalf of NPNS. NPNS can not be associated in any way with the words, actions and ideologies defended by Sarah Braasch. By our statutes, only the president can speak on behalf of the association. NPNS is a secular, apolitical movement that militates against all types of discrimination. We fight against all forms of identity withdrawal and cultural relativism that result in a frightening rise of obscurantism. We constantly promote living together harmoniously, while providing concrete help and support to victims of violence. Our feminism is a humanism, our feminism is a grassroots movement, our feminism is universalist. NPNS can not tolerate being quoted in connection with statements that run counter to its values or those of the Republic.”
