The objective of the event is to shed light on current challenges to movements fighting for equality in Europe, with a specific focus on gender equality and on cosmopolitism.
18.30-19.40 – Equality and Democracy in the European public space
The EU has put into place ‘Gender mainstreaming’ policies and action to ensure equal access to all to high level positions seems to be gained in Europe: laws on equal access to MEP positions etc…
Does that mean than feminism and struggles for equality lost their rationale? What are the challenges today?
Jeanine Mossuz-Lavau, director of research at CNRS, CEVIPOF, spécialist of issues of women representation in politics
Agnieska Graff, writer and key polish feminist
19.40-20.50 – Public space and diversity: For a cosmopolitan feminism!
The struggles for equality face a new reality linked to migrations: 2nd generation immigrants in european countries, struggles for gender equality outside Europe. These issues call for a redefinition of objectives and action of struggles for equality in Europe.
Sonia Dayan-Hezbrun, sociologist, professeur at Université Paris VII/Diderot and at l’EHESS, specialist of gender relationships in Maghreb and Machreq.
