GSEF celebrates International Women's Day

Today, 8th of March, is International Women’s Day (IWD). GSEF joins Social and Solidarity Economy (SSE) actors from all around the globe on this celebration of the achievements of women in all domains – which is also an occasion to campaign for greater progress towards gender equality!

We, at GSEF Secretariat’s office, want to take this opportunity today to celebrate our amazing colleagues' achievements, and to reaffirm our commitment to advance gender equality and women’s rights taken in Bilbao last year through the GSEF2018 Declaration in favor of an inclusive economic and social model.

Gender equality and women’s empowerment are among the core values of SSE and GSEF encourages all to take actions towards these objectives. We will continue to strive to do exactly that in all of our activities!

If you would like to learn more about this issue, our member RIPESS gathered resources on women & SSE.
