On March 6 th , the first event of the Sisters of Europe took place in Berlin. 

The European magazine, the Schwarzkopf foundation and the journalists’ network Oikomedia organized the public discussion: “Money, Power and Independence: How do we create equality between women and men”.

Journalist Viktoria Kleber, moderator.

The scope of the event, was to examine the persistent financial and political aspects of gender inequalities in Germany and search for solutions.

Gender equality is claimed to be one of the EU’s founding values, stipulated since 1957 in the Treaty of Rome. However, in 2019, men & women are still not equal within Europe: Women earn 16,3% less for the same job in Europe, they are less often represented in leading positions or in the parliaments and more likely to suffer of old-age poverty.

Our aim was to cover the financial and political aspects of gender equality.

Prof. Dr. Ulrike Detmers, entrepreneur.
