WHY WE CARE ABOUT WOMEN?
We should never take fundamental freedoms and civil rights for granted; rather, wide awareness and active participation to public life are necessary to preserve them and give a boost to women empowerment.
EWA wants to instigate positive and cooperative change, by increasing awareness among men and women from all backgrounds on the continued need to fight, and engendering policy change at EU level that favours social justice, sustainability, and inclusion.
#DoneOnPeriod is a social campaign launched for Women’s Day in Romania, during the country’s Presidency of the Council of the European Union. It aims to target a subtle yet powerful way of discrimination that is still happening in Romania as in other Latin cultures: the assumption that women are not capable of doing things “right” while being on period. Moreover, in Romanian a woman on period is referred as being “pe stop”, on stop.
With the support of some of the most famous Romanian female celebrities, we ask women to share a significant achievement they have reached while being on period, in order to prove that period-shaming is just a false and harmful prejudice. #DoneOnPeriod talks about all the things that women do best, when some people think they are at their worst. | Read More
#WEUCO is an unprecedented initiative bringing together Members of European Parliament, European Commissioners and Representatives of the Presidency of the Council of the EU, aiming at making concrete proposals and undertake actions to change European public policies through a gender perspective.
#WEUCO is an informal European Summit, taking place before European Council’s meetings and discussing its agenda to pursue gender policy objectives and to commit women leaders and civil society towards a renewed vision of European Union.
To this purpose #WEUCO endorses conclusions to submit to the European Council, the European Parliament, the European Commission and the Presidency of the Council of the EU in order to influence its decisions and boosting women’s and girl’s empowerment. | Read more
We want to build anotHer Europe that hallmarks women’s identity, maintains the memory of our historical fight for our rights, and builds a future that finally represents all Europeans. The realisation of real and lasting change is only possible if we transform the individual strength of women into a political force that ultimately brings women to the fore.
For this reason, EWA calls on European parties, and the women who work in them, to commit to guaranteeing equal representation and supporting female leadership as a priority in the 2019 European elections. These priorities should be demonstrated through the nomination of more women to high-ranking and executive positions in the EU. | English Version | Italian Version
