On Tuesday 25 May 2021 between 17h45-18h45 the FEMM Committee will organise a Public Hearing entitled “Socio-economic position of women”.
This hearing will offer a specific focus on the feedback experiences of women from race or cultural backgrounds of African, Middle-eastern, and Asian descent, who live in the European Union.
The aim is to better understand the degree of their social and economic integration, their difficulties, and their hopes, so as to imagine and develop practical, integrative, and effective equality policies.
Different speakers will present their experiences, analysis, and suggestions. Their presentation will be followed by a Q&A session with Members of the Committee on Women’s Rights and Gender Equality.
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.
