Coeur de Femmes - 4 and 5 March 2020 in Marseille

03.03.2020 / Created by FFMDEF

Coeur de Femmes is a time for meeting, sharing, discovering know-how and the possibilities of creation. A place for debate on the situation of women in the world. A citizen’s space.

During this event organized by Forum Femmes Méditerrannée, the initiatives of local associations in the framework of the International Women’s Day will be highlighted.

It is also the occasion for festive, cultural and sport happenings, carried out for women, with women and by women.

This event will allow women to meet, to exchange on multiple issues such as employment, domestic violence, the right to freely dispose of their bodies, in order to gain strength, to support each other, to fully exercise their rights.

In this sense, local solidarity networks will be developed.

Several studies show that women are doubly affected by poverty, in particular, because of the family responsibilities they very often assume alone and because of gender-related stereotypes that trap them in precarious roles.

In addition, many women are victims of violence, most often in silence. All these realities plunge a large majority of women in the neighbourhood into financial, but also social, relational, emotional and cultural precariousness.

Faced with this situation, it is necessary to continue to carry out actions to support women in order to combat the inequalities that affect them and the difficulties they encounter, as well as activities to make their capacity for resistance clearly visible.
