Brief Description of the Project
The aim of the Project is to raise awareness and fight against of the infringement of human rights of women and the violence they suffer, all around the world, because they are women. The oppression that women suffer is a global problem which affects women in the whole world. Because of that, we need to raise awareness about this problem and reflect getting a deeper understanding of what implies being born as a woman and the consequences that this entails, starting explaining the difference between the concepts sex and gender.
We will work about the different inequalities and oppressions that women suffer as the gender pay gap, the lack of conciliation between the personal and Laboral life, the sexual segmentation of the job market, the glass ceiling, the lack of parity in the politics and the physical violence women suffer direct on their bodies, as FGM, child marriage, sexual and reproductive exploitation and feminicide.
