Women's Day EPALE


On average, women around the EU earn 16% less per hour than men. Women earn less over their lifetimes, have a lower employment rate and are more likely to be living in poverty.

Adult learning has the power to change attitudes, to give confidence and to help to eliminate gender inequality. More European women are now involved with lifelong learning than men, with the overall number higher than five years ago, with fantastic projects happening all over the EU.

We've gathered some of the best blogs and case studies celebrating women and their joy of learning right here. Don't forget to check out our teaching resources for working with disadvantaged female groups. And if you want to learn more about gender issues in Europe, visit this online infographic here.

    Tarybinis kontekstas mus užliūliavo, kad tai - diena, kai vyrai mus turi apipilti tulpėmis. Tačiau šiandien galvoju, kad būtent todėl, kad aktyvios lygių teisių visuomenės veikėjos skelbė ir skatino visuomenes keistis, aš šiandien (tiesiogine to žodžio prasme) esu mokymuose Portugalijoje, o mano sutuoktinis rūpinasi mano vaikais. Jei nebūtų judėjimo už lygias moterų teises, aš negalėčiau daryti to, ką darau šiandien. Šiandien aš esu laiminga moteris, mama, bet taip pat ir tyrėja, ekspertė... Su Tarptautine moters diena, mielos kolegės!
