Baltic Sea Women’s Online Conference: “Solidarity & Gender Democracy”
„Equality between women and men is a fundamental value of the
European Union but it has not yet been fully achieved by any
member state. Every year, the European Institute for Gender
Equality (EIGE) releases the Gender Equality Index, a tool to
measure progress in gender equality in the EU in six core domains
(work, money, knowledge, time, power, health). 2021, the EU scored
68 points out of 100, with widely varying results across countries.
However, gender inequalities are most pronounced in the domain
of power, especially in economic decision-making.
In view of the too slow progress in gender equality as well as
setbacks in women’s rights, the conference takes up relevant issues
of gender inequality in the Baltic Sea region and has invited experts
from six countries to present and discuss their perspectives on
important issues for the future. The first day is dedicated to
economic aspects and the second day to political aspects.
Under the motto “Solidarity & Gender Democracy” the conference
offers a platform for connection, mutual learning, solidarity and
transnational feminist advocacy. Linked to this, the main objective
of the conference is to create strong networks across national
borders and to advocate for the stronger integration of the gender
perspective in the policies of the Baltic Sea Region.
The conference takes place on the occasion of the 30th anniversary
of the Institute for Interdisciplinary Gender Research and Diversity.“
