Edition II: Equality or uniformization? #RealWomensRights
08 III 2021 | 4:00 – 7:30 PM (CET)
Idea of the conference
The purpose of the Women’s Rights Conference is to analyze the realization of women’s rights in today’s world. Nowadays, the term ‘women’s rights’ is often used as a slogan in an ideological or political debate and there is an ever growing need to establish the use of this term in a non-ideological manner. This is a crucial element in the debate concerning the real threats that women face on a day-to-day basis in various aspects of their lives, and will in turn allow us to provide more effective solutions to strengthen and protect their rights and freedoms. We believe that what is often said to be the case of women’s discrimination, does not always meet the real struggle women deal with when pursuing their needs and desires. The topic of women’s rights needs to be touched upon in an objective way, free from the bias of ideology, in order to present the true threats to women’s rights in the modern world, as well as to provide effective solutions to strengthen the realization of these rights. Our aim is to propose the most effective solutions to the problems faced by women today and find ways in which all women can work together to strengthen their roles and participate in resolving the problems they face in today’s society.
We would like to continue our series of discussions concerning the various issues related to women’s rights. The first edition took place on November 12th 2020 and was dedicated to political and philosophical contexts of the debate concerning women’s rights in the global context and the question of women’s health rights.
During the second edition, which will be held on March 8th of this year, we are going to discuss the gender perspective and the question of whether it is a proper way to address the needs and problems women are facing in modern society. Our panelists will elaborate on the topic of doctrinal backgrounds of the gender perspective, its vision concerning femininity, masculinity, relations between the sexes, the fight against discrimination, and the issue of the evolution of this term at the international level.
Nowadays, the gender perspective is presented as a main instrument to acquire equality between men and women. Despite numerous doubts and objections against this concept presented in literature and public debate, it was included in the official canon of discussions in international institutions. Despite the widespread lack of support of various countries around the world, this concept is still particularly strongly present in documents of non-binding nature and is likely to find entry into binding European law soon. Our panelists will try to answer the substantial questions – is the gender perspective compatible with a woman’s perspective? Does the gender perspective really lead to equality, or may it rather enhance uniformization, discrimination and – potentially – eradicata femininity from the modern world?
