I’ve been blessed in my life to do work that I love — advancing social justice and equality. Now I am taking the lessons I learned from our struggle to end apartheid and establish democracy in South Africa to advance equality for the world’s girls and women as the head of UN Women.

We are fortified by evidence that equality for women is progress for all.

Une analyse du discours du féminisme de Jean-Paul II

Anne-Joëlle Philippart
June 10, 2014

De Mulieris Dignitatem, le symptôme du Rift.
 En 1988, le pape Jean-Paul II écrit la lettre apostolique « De Mulieris Dignitatem ». Il la conçoit comme une restauration de l’image des femmes et comme la contrepartie de la déclaration Inter Insigniores (CDF, 1976) qui les excluait de la prêtrise.
La réception du texte est très variée. Les uns l’accueillent [...]

It is great to be here today among friends and kindred spirits. The National Democratic Institute is a passionate advocate for the full participation of women in the life of nations. I admire you, I salute you, I am with you.

I haven’t watched the Eurovision song contest in living memory, but this year I was invited to a Eurovision party. Not wanting to be a party-pooper, I entered into the spirit of the occasion.

You tried to raise your children gender-neutral but your daughter still loves ballerinas and your son loves cars. Maybe it’s not your fault. Maybe this shows their urges are genetically programed.

Was treibt mich nach mehr als 16 Jahren Diversity immer noch für das Thema an? Das fragte mich jüngst ein Journalist, und ich denke, die Frage müssen sich ExpertInnen in diesem Bereich ab und an stellen.

Drei aktuelle Beispiele – alle aus Projektarbeit mit DAX Vorständen und Bereichsvorständen – mögen das illustrieren:

Can Women Have it All?

Simona Paravani-Mellinghoff from www.cervelliinfuga.com
April 10, 2014

Can women have it all? To start, let’s get the ugly stats out of the way. Women account for 40% of the workforce, but own a much smaller fraction of global wealth. No matter what metrics we use, women are under-represented in the circles of power: only 5% of CEOs of the Fortune 500 companies are women; women take up just 14% of Board level positions in Europe.
