17 September 2015, in Marseille
The presentation of the First monitoring report on the role of women in the Mediterranean is organised by the « Forum Femmes Méditerrannée » (FFM) in partnership with the Euro-Mediterranean Women’s Foundation (EMWF). Many experts and researchers who contributed to this report, which was published in May 2015, will be present. The report covers a qualitative monitoring of the situation of women in 12 countries of the Union for the Mediterranean: Algeria, Egypt, France, Greece, Italy, Jordan, Lebanon, Morocco, Portugal, Tunisia and Turkey. It addresses three main aspects: the participation of women in economic and social life, their participation in political life, and violence against women. In addition to the presentation, there will be a follow-up meeting on the implementation of the EMWF actions, including the progress of the project "Strengthening the capacity of equality actors" financed by the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Development.
Finally, on 19 September, the EMWF will participate to the 4th World March of Women « Les femmes face aux extrémismes » convened by the Coordination of the Marche Mondiale des Femmes 13 PACA and the Marche Mondiales des Femmes France.
This platform is part of the Axis 1 "Strengthening the capacities of equality actors" of the Priority Solidarity Fund "Women for the future in the Mediterranean" funded by the French Ministry of Europe and Foreign Affairs and led by the European Institute of the Mediterranean, in the framework of the project “Developing Women's Empowerment” labelled by the Union for the Mediterranean.
