“10 Years” campaign: Gender Justice

For the Women's History Month, the Estoril Conferences throwback lands on "Gender Justice"

Too many times the silent issue of gender inequality is subconsciously present in the minds of women and men.

Some people might wonder if gender inequality really exists; but only by directly asking women whether they feel that society is treating them fairly, they will soon realize that it is still a very present reality.

Although there is progress in some countries, in other parts of the world women still lack control over their bodies and lives. For example: 1 in 5 women still report experiencing physical or forced intimacy with a partner. Or, in national parliaments, female representation only accounts for 24%. And also, only 1 manager out of 3 is a woman*.

We need to fight for a world where every person has the same opportunities despite their gender. Start the conversation on #genderjustice
