On Wendsday, 6th of March at 18.30 pm, at Schwarzkopf foundation, the European magazine cafebabel.com, the Schwarzkopf foundation and the journalists’ network Oikomedia organize the public discussion: “Money, Power and Independence: How do we create equality between women and men”.

The scope of the event, is to examine the persistent financial and political aspects of gender inequalities in Germany and search for solutions.

Gender equality is claimed to be one of the EU’s founding values,
stipulated since 1957 in the Treaty of Rome. However, in 2019, men &
women are still not equal within Europe: Women earn 16,3% less for the
same job in Europe, they are less often represented in leading positions
or in the parliaments and more likely to suffer of old-age poverty.

The event is part of the European wide project ‘Sisters of Europe’, an online platform, portraying and connecting 17 women from different professions, backgrounds and locations. The project ‘Sisters of Europe’ wants to encourage lively discourse on the issues that women confront in our democracies. Four agoras in four European capitals (Paris, Berlin, Warsaw and Athens) discuss specific issues that women are confronted with geographically speaking, as well as create a network.
