The Institute of European Studies of the Jagiellonian University is pleased to invite you to the expert debate ‘EU Politics: Where Are The Women?’, taking place at the Institute, ul. Romana Ingardena 3, 30-060 Kraków (room 122) on Thursday, 21 March 2019, 7pm.
While equality between women and men is one of the founding values of the European Union, it is still far from being a reality today. Women are still under-represented in decision-making instances, both in terms of participation and protection of their rights. Furthermore, rising populist and nationalist movements are changing the European political landscape in past few years, putting women’s rights under threat.
Taking into consideration the upcoming 2019 European Parliament election, it seems of utmost importance to analyse women’s participation in the political sphere, its current stage and what we can – all – demand for the future. The aim of this debate is therefore to discuss women’s rights and involvement in politics, from sociological, political and activist points of view.
- Ms. Małgorzata Druciarek, Head of the Gender Equality Observatory, Institute of Public Affairs in Warsaw,
