Gender equality

Gender discrimination hampers the development of people’s life and of the society as a whole. Today, women are still sidelined to spaces with weak decision-making power and less participation in public life, while the overload of family responsibility persists. The absence of real equality makes women the main target of poverty.

Moreover, sexist violence is far from decreasing: 33% of the women in Europe have suffered physical assaults, and this figure rises to 43% when talking about psychological abuse.
