Contextualisation

MP Ágnes Osztolykán. Would you guess that she had just returned in boots and raingear from helping with sandbags against flooding in Budapest? No? Would you guess that this lone person has stood up to Jobbik in Parliament, fearful, yet undeterred? Here is an entirely approachable politician, willing to change clothes and become Fabulous. She wore a design by beloved Erika Varga to her swearing-in. More seriously, she was denied her income by the ruling party, worked without recompense for months on end, relegated to the lower bench. Why? Guess. She is Romani. First and only elected to Parliament of her gender. Recipient of the 2011 International Women of Courage Award from the United States Department of State. Implacable, courageous. There are Romani within Fidesz, who sit quietly on their hands. Mme Osztolykán is not about sitting on her hands. Not after having come from modest background in Miskolc, pushed her way up through graduate school, stood for election. This is someone to respect.
