Multiple discrimination

Let´s Make the Invisible Visible

Why are we doing this?

As new waves of immigration into the EU are imminent and as we can see in the current corona crisis in which multiple discriminated women are primarily vulnerable, the issue of multiple discriminated women in the EU will remain on the political agenda for quite some time and may even grow in its importance.

Project objectives

Develope methods for working with vulnerable groups of women in adult education and counselling.

Though gender equality was enshrined in the founding treaties of the European Economic Communities in 1957, gender equality de facto is far from being achieved. Women in general are still being discriminated against in an EU context. There are numerous groups of women who are discriminated against on multiple grounds such as their ethnicity, migrant status or age.

However standard tools of our educational system do not seem to have brought expected results so far.

Instead such standard educational methods in combination with social services appear to perpetuate the status quo of vulnerable groups and also difficulties they face in life. Innovative ways of education and counselling have to be sought for this particular target group.
