Women’s Movements and Gender Equality

July 1, 2023 at 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm CEST

In the ninth salon of the Ideas Shape the World - An Introduction to Social Movements series host Robert Nemeth and special guest Andrea Peto will discuss gender equality, movements related to or influenced by it, and how it affects today’s world.

Gender equality means equal access to resources and opportunities regardless of gender, including economic participation and decision-making; and the state of valuing different behaviors, aspirations and needs equally, regardless of gender. Achieving gender equality also requires eliminating harmful practices against women and girls, including sex trafficking, wartime sexual violence, gender wage gap, and other oppression tactics. It is not only a fundamental human right, but a necessary foundation for a peaceful, prosperous and sustainable world, as stated in the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals.

But what is the difference between gender equality, gender equity and gender neutrality? Why are these movements still important in today’s societies?

Special guest: Andrea Peto
