Berdintasuna, emakumeak eta Europar Batasuna = La igualdad, las mujeres y la Union Europea = Equality, women and the European Union

Taking into account that International Women’s Day was celebrated on March 8th, a very up-to-date topic with a huge repercussion was discussed: equality and feminism. In order to compare the European perspective and national politics and programmes, there were 4 speakers: Marina Calloni, Social and Political Philosophy professor at Milan University; Kristin Tran, adviser for the Swedish Feminist Initiative political party at the European Union and Alexandra Byröd, a Swedish politician working in Stockholm and a human rights activist. Izaskun Landaida, the director of Emakunde, acted as the moderator, and explained local programmes and policies.
