ALDA at International Women Day

Mar 01, 2021

Gender, Inclusion & Human rights

The International Women Day represents, every year, a very important recurrence for ALDA, in light of our commitment towards a more just and inclusive society, where males and females enjoy equal rights, and none is victim of discrimination nor injustices.

Therefore, ALDA is proud to be among the organisers of a series of events aimed at celebrating the key role of women in the society and raising awareness on the role that women have played and still play as leaders and change promoters.

Managed by the EPD network, the two online appointments will take place on March 4th: starting in the morning with an EU-level roundtable, event open to practitioner and policymakers, the afternoon will be dedicated to a public event celebrating inspiring stories of women engaged at the political and community level.

Women who lead”: here is the title of the public event, occurring in the afternoon of Thursday March 4th, from 3PM to 4.15PM during which participants will be delighted to discover women leaders’ journeys and achievements. Inspiring stories shared with the aim of motivate action and sow seeds of change for equality and justice.

The conversation will be animated by women from all around the globe and with different backgrounds:

  • Imarn Ayton – Actress, activist and leading voice in the #BlackLivesMatter UK protests and founder of the Black Reformist Movement
  • Tamara Adrián – Venezuelan lawyer and academic, and the first trans woman to win a seat as a member of the country’s Congress
  • Sidita Zaja – Executive Director of the NGO ProLGBT, fighting for the rights of the LGBTI community in Albania
  • Sophie Heesen – Politician and Councillor for the Dutch Labour party (PvdA) in Gouda, campaigning for LGBTI rights, anti-discrimination policies and gender equality
  • Krishala Tamang – One of the youngest elected Vice-Chairpeople of Doramba Rural Municipality in Nepal’s Ramechhap district, and national-level martial arts expert
  • Nabila Ramdani, award-winning journalist and broadcaster and one of the WEF’s 2012 Young Global Leaders, will moderate the discussion.

How these women succeeded in overcoming pollical and societal barriers? Which were the main obstacles they met during their path?
