Founded in 1935, the Atria - Institute on Gender Equality and Women’s History is a foundation based in Amsterdam (The Netherlands) committed to equal treatment and equal opportunities for girls and women in all their social and cultural diversity.
The Foundation has a library that manages and shares the heritage of women’s movements. Among others, this entity researches women’s position in current society and advises on policy developments that affect women’s positions.
Some of Atria’s key objectives are to achieve a better reconciliation of work and family life for women, to prevent violence against women and girls, to fight gender stereotypes, and to advocate for more representation of women whether in the political field or in senior and executive positions.
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.
