On March 6 th , the first event of the Sisters of Europe is going to take place in Berlin. 

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

The scope of the event, is 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 is to cover the financial and political aspects of gender equality.

After the introduction of the idea behind the project by Elina Makri and Prune Antoine, a poetry slam by Svenja Gräfen on the topic „Feminism“ will be followed by a public discussion with Prof. Dr. Jutta Allmendinger, activist duo HERR & SPEER, journalist Martha Dudzinski, managar and professor Prof. Dr. Ulrike Detmers.

The discussion will be moderated by journalist Viktoria Kleber and will be held in German.

By portraying and connecting 17 women from different professions, backgrounds and locations, the project Sisters of Europe wants to encourage discussions on the issues that women confront in our democracies.

The event is organized in cooperation with Schwarzkopf-Stiftung Junges Europa and Cafebabel Berlin | Babel Deutschland e.V., supported by the DGB-Project “Was verdient die Frau?
