WOMEN’S RIGHTS IN EUROPE:

NEW DEMOCRATIC CHALLENGES!

Tuesday 2 and Wednesday 3 February, 2010

in Sisak (Croatia) in hotel “Panonija”, near Zagreb

 

On the issue of men’s/womens’s rights equality, remarkable advances have been achieved. Yet, major inequalities persist among the 27 member states, and assets are being challenged. What progress has been made? What are the biggest threats? How to push forward the idea of necessarily harmonized women’s rights in Europe, on the basis of the most progressive criteria and of the most advances legislations?

Exchanges based on the situation in the spheres of labour, politics, sexuality.

Lilian Halls-French, sociologist, chair of IFE

Jean-Paul Plassard, chair of Realpe

Paula Rauzan, chair LDA Sisak

Elected councillors, associations, trade unions from many European countries.
