Gender management (2004)

An active application of equal opportunities presented a big question mark for many employers. Information on specific  procedures and measures was not available and was not taken as a natural part of human resources development. That´s why in early January 2004 the website http://management.gendernora.cz was launched. It was intended above all for employers but could be used also by employees, experts and students.
The website is not updated any more, but still serves as a reservoir of interesting texts on the issues such as family friendly measures in companies or support of women.

Solo Parenting

Recording of panel debate on solo parenting


The final activity of the project was held on 6th November 2014 in Husa na provázku. You can watch the recording of the whole evening here:

 

Special edition of magazine FEMA on solo parenting was published

The printed magazine is available in Brno NESEHNUTÍ and in bookstore FSS, or in Gender Studies o.p.s. in Prague.

You can also write to NORA (info@gendernora.cz) to ask for a copy and we'll send you one by mail. The magazine costs 45 czech crowns. By purchasing it you support our activity.

There's even a special offer for solo parents, who can get a free electronic version of the magazine: just write on e-mail m.horakova.lazarova@gendernora.cz to ask for one. 

Why is this edition of FEMA special? Thanks to financial support from Slovak-Czech Women's Fund, we have been able to publish a printed version after a long pause. This edition is devoted to solo parenting and is part of the project "Solo parenting - a social phenomenon?" that took place in 2014. 

In the project we focused on solo parenting in Czech Republic and by various educational activites we supported 15 single mothers from Brno and its surroundings. In addition to the release of FEMA we will hold a public debate on solo parenting with experts and some of the women supported by the project. Furthermore, we will present a play called Samodiva/ Theathrical blues for solo mothers directed by Janka Ryšánek Schmiedtová and a documentary film Blues for solo mothers directed by Iveta Grófová.

In this issue of FEMA you can find an interview with Iveta Grófová and with a single mother Laura. Besides that, there's a coverage from a shelter for women in distress, an overview of financial aid in the Czech Republic, reviews of publications dealing with the issue of solo parenting and an article on European context of the phenomenon.

Kateřina Hodická, director of Gender Information Centre NORA, o.p.s. wishes you an inspirational reading!

 

Roma Women

Currently we are looking for Roma women for the project.

WEB of the project

About the project

Roma women are one of the most discriminated groups in the Czech labour market. Lack of opportunities for Roma women are related not only to their social status and ethnicity, but also to traditional position of Roma women in family, which is associated with maternity and nursing roles. Such perception of Roma women can be considered as one of the causes of low share of Roma women in the labour market and low motivation of Roma women to succeed in the educational system.

The project aims to increase awareness of gender topics in a concrete group of Roma women, motivate these women towards the need of professional development and support their entry into labour market. At the same time the project aims at sensitising the Czech public (both the general public and experts) to specific features of gender relations in the Roma population. We cooperate on this project with Roma association MIRET.

The project will work with a target group of 30 Roma women from Brno and the surroundings. Interactive seminars will serve to acquaint these women with the notion of gender and with equal opportunities. Women will be offered tailor made educational activities (basics of labour law, discrimination based on an ethnic origin, mapping one's own competences, time management strategy). These women will be offered the possibility of mentoring as well.

The project also includes research on the topic of role of Roma women and shooting of a documentary film on role of Roma women.

The project was supported by the Open Society Fund Prague on the program Let's Give (Wo)men a Chance, which is funded by the Norway Grants. Through the Norway Grants Norway contributes to reducing social and economic disparities and strengthening cooperation in Europe. It primarily supports environmental protection, research and scholarships, civil society development, health care, children, gender equality and improvement of justice. The program Let's Give (Wo)men a Chance promotes equal opportunities for women and men in professional and personal life, and prevention and assistance to victims of domestic violence in the Czech Republic. It is managed by the Open Society Fund Prague, which has been developing values of an open society and democracy in the Czech Republic since 1992.
