Fighting the under-representation of women in the EU Bubble

Fighting the under-representation of women in the EU Bubble




As the president of the Brussels Binder, Dr Audrey-Flore Ngomsik was interviewed by the MEP assistant.


๐Ÿ”ด"The European Union is trying to become a global leader in gender equality. But shouldnโ€™t its institutions look inward, into their own functioning and at women's representation to ensure the implementation of egalitarian policies?"


๐ŸŸขThe Brussels Binder did, and has implemented change. Its strategy, its volunteers, its initiatives...


โš ๏ธ And gender is not enough! #Equality means to go beyond gender, this is why one of the core values of the Brussels Binder is #intersectionality.

To be able to debate, to see every angle, to be able to draft inclusive policies you need to have a broader diversity of expertise on a problem.

This is the only way to vote laws that include everyone.


To conclude, #intersectionality is not about individuality.

It is about having #systemicchange in life, #workplace, #studies.

It is about having #systemichange in a place that privilege only one type of person.
