When you were a child, have you ever been told to act like a girl (or a boy)?
In the European Union, women earn on average 16% less than men. For the same job. Why?
Working women in the EU spend on average 26 hours/week on unpaid care and housework. Working men… 9 hours.
Gender stereotypes affect everyone since their birth, continuing to become prominent in schools and at work place though the entire life. ALDA and all partners of the project GET UP hope to delete this from all future conversations.
ALDA is part of the project GET UP – Gender Equality Training to overcome Unfair discrimination Practices in education and labour market, co-funded by the Rights, Equality and Citizenship programme of the European Union. The project tackles the stereotyping of educational and career choices, and promotes gender equality in education, training, career guidance and at the workplace.
