Wthin the framework of the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women celebrated on 25 November, the European Parliament’s office in Marseille is organising this citizen’s debate to discuss the situation of women on both sides of the Mediterranean.
This debate is organised in partnership with Forum Femmes Méditerranée, the Euro-Mediterranean Women’s Foundation, the association Altafemina, the Information Centre on Women’s and Family Rights of the Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur region, Les Têtes de l’Art, the Atelier des Jeunes Citoyens et Citoyennes de la Méditerranée, and the Europe Direct Provence Information Centre.
The debate will seek to answer the following questions: How are the recent women’s emancipation movements taking shape on both sides of the Mediterranean? How can we promote gender equality in the workplace? How can we act to put an end to and prevent physical violence, rape and feminicide?
The objective of this debate is to discuss the progress of women’s rights around the Mediterranean at the political, legislative and socio-economic levels. Both the speakers and the audience will give examples of actions carried out in these different areas to improve women’s daily lives.
The debate will allow participants to exchange and ask questions to politicians, professionals and associations involved in the defence of women’s rights and the improvement of their daily lives.
