About the event
If not me, who? If not now, when? With inspirational keynote speaker Maria Andersson.
One in three women is exposed to men's violence at some point in their lives. To create a change, we also need to break norms. Men are the ones who are responsible for most of the violence, therefore they are also the basis for change.
Even today in 2022, we treat boys and girls differently. Boys should be macho and tough, which means that they must not be vulnerable and learn humility. When they are told that they are better than girls, the gap between the sexes is created and inequality is a fact.
Men's violence against women affects everyone. We must dare to talk about it and how we treat each other in our everyday lives, at work, at school and in the family.
As Emma Watson said in her speech at the UN.
”If not me, who?
If not now, when? ”
Its time for a change! Lets all be a little bit like Emma in our everyday life.
Join us for this inspirational breakfast seminar to commemorate the upcoming International Women´s day and the continuous work towards a more equal world
