20190328_ Its time for gender equality

 

On 1 January 2016, the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development — adopted by world leaders in September 2015 at an historic UN Summit — officially came into force. Over the next fifteen years, with these new Goals that universally apply to all, countries will mobilise efforts to end all forms of poverty, fight inequalities and tackle climate change, while ensuring that no one is left behind. With this purpose, Dialogue Café Association is organising a cycle of debates focused on the SDGs and 2030 Agenda in order to contribute to its achievement and raising awareness. Sessions focused on Education, Gender Equality and Climate Change among other topics will be organised under this thematic umbrella.

In the framework of the International Women’s Day 2019, a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women, Dialogue CafĂ© would like to address one of the major challenges of the XXI century, the SDG5: Achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls, by joining the Women´s Day Campaign #BalanceforBetter, hence dedicating a session to celebrate collective action working hard for gender equality, which is an essential element for economies and communities to thrive at all levels: political, economic, social, and cultural.

Join this session and share successful experiences and stories on some of the targets related to SDG5 such as fighting violence against all women and girls, promoting women´s participation and leadership at all levels of decision making, ensuring equal rights to economic resources, and enhancing the use of enabling technology for women´s empowerment.

Dialogue Café will invite representatives of social groups, communities, local authorities, civil society organisations, experts, women´s organisations and international organisations to discuss about how best we can truly make a positive difference for women everywhere.

This session, which will be held on 28 March from 15h30 to 17h London time.

Women´s Empowerment: sharing challenges and good practices 0 Reply

From the local to the global level, women´s leadership and participation in society are restricted. Women are underrepresented at the political and economic level, as well as leading positions, whether in elected office, the civil service, the private sector or the Academia. This occurs despite their proven abilities as leaders and agents of change, and their right to participate equally in democratic governance. Women face several obstacles to participating in public life. Structural barriers through discriminatory laws and institutions still limit women´s options to run for office. Capacity gaps mean women are less likely than men to have the education, contacts and resources needed to become effective leaders. As the 2011 UN General Assembly resolution on women´s political participation notes, “Women in every part of the world continue to be largely marginalized from the political sphere, often as a result of discriminatory laws, practices, attitudes and gender stereotypes, low levels of education, lack of access to health care and the disproportionate effect of poverty on women”. Individual women have overcome these obstacles with great acclaim, and often to the benefit of society at large. But for women as a whole, the playing field needs to be level, opening opportunities for all[1].

Women´s Empowerment through Creative Industries 2 2

“Creative industries are those industries that have their origin in individual creativity, skill, and talent, and have potential for job creation through the generation and exploitation of ideas or imagination. Using this broad definition, creative industries range from advertising and social media to the likes of agribusiness, design, and handicrafts. Creative industries provide a platform to support the sustained empowerment of women. In communities across the world, rich cultural value and traditional designs have been protected and nurtured by women through creative industries.”[1]

 

The rise of the creative industries presents significant opportunities for transforming women´s energy into new ideas, organisation and a future vision for societies. The sessions will address some of the critical policy approaches that are required to promote creative entrepreneurship among women and young women.

With this purpose, the Dialogue Café Association offer its network to address the challenges faced by women in terms of employment and opportunities for entrepreneurship within the creative sector and to reinforce networking opportunities.

Based on the main recommendations identified by international organisations such as UNCTAD[1], UNIDO and UNESCO, the Dialogue Café Network organises a session on women´s empowerment through creative industries focused on the following topics:

  • Women´s participation in Creative Industries.
