« The Audacity of Choice » : The Union for the Mediterranean celebrates Euro-Mediterranean women
March 6, 2019
International Women’s Day is an opportunity to take stock of the progress made on gender equality and the situation of women, but above all, to anticipate the future and enhance the opportunities that will benefit future generations of women and men.
This year, in partnership with the French Institute of Barcelona and the InterArts Foundation, the Union for the Mediterranean has chosen to shed light on those women of the Euro-Mediterranean region who have had the audacity, in order to appropriate their right to equality, to choose singular pathways that upset common prejudices and stereotypes about women and their roles in society. An open event at 7:00 pm at the French Institute of Barcelona will celebrate five women from the Euro-Mediterranean region who – by their audacious choices – have paved the way of equality, so other women and girls can benefit from it.
