Hello everyone and thank you for joining this discussion!
Based on the recommendations of EIGE regarding access to the participation of women in positions of economic and political decision, in my opinion we have to start working these issues through an education that promotes gender equality, eliminating preconceptions and stereotypes about the role women in society that still rooted.
I think we should look at HeForShe campaign launched by UN Women and the similarity of the White Ribbon campaign launched by EIGE mobilization of men to combat violence against women, should be betting on a campaign at European level to sensitize the society and above all mobilize men to promote gender equality, making them active players because of this that concerns us all.
In my opinion, although I understand that the implementation of quotas is needed to asseguarar equity between men and women, starting with the European Parliament and the national parliaments where women's representation leaves much to be desired, assuming a very low expression compared with universes of men.
Thank you for this intervention! In your opinion, would you see the zip procedure -- nominating a woman and a man for a position -- as a possible solution, in line with the described campaines?
The purpose of For He She campaign, despite its extreme importance, in my opinion there is a failure to point to is the fact that not also have a male ambassador to, since this campaign is targeted to men.
Having only one woman as ambassador for men conveys the idea that gender equality is associated with women, which is false.
This fact can lead to resistance that men have in join the campaign, helping the message is not reaching as one would like.
