In view of the forthcoming elections to the European Parliament, in May 2019, we believe that the debate, reflection and participation of the citizenship on the contribution of women to the construction of Europe and the need to advocate to ensure the human rights of women and to reach an effective gender equality, as a core approach to build the future of Europe, from one of its fundamental values which affects all the fields of the society.
The awareness campaign #FemEU2019 wants to advocate to bring back on the top of the future European political agenda the priority to address women’ human rights.
We believe that a society of rights and equity for all the people will not be possible while:
Women that represents the 51% of the European Union population keep on suffering a constant discrimination in all the fields of life, as for instance:
16,2% gender pay gap
40% gender pensions gap
1 out of 3 women has suffered physical or sexual violence
To achieve this goal we launch the advocacy campaign #FemEU2019 #FeministEurope #WomenontheEEroad #EleccionsUE2019 #thistimeimvoting that include the following ACTIONS:
- Two international conferences with local, national and European experts from the political, social, economic and media (Barcelona: December 3, 2018 and March 29, 2019).
- Talks, social gatherings and debates #FemEU2019 at the municipalities
- EU campaign cooperating with NGO’s around Europe willing to advocate and disseminate the campaign in their countries.
- Campaign at the social networks: twitter, instagram and facebook.
We want to put the purple glasses on and, through a democratic process, demand a Europe without privileges and equal for all the people.
