Call for Participants for the Study Session "Women Power"
Held by FYEG in partnership with the Council of Europe
Time: 2 - 9 of April 2006
Place: Budapest, Hungary
Deadline: 29th of January 2006
FYEG is looking for 30 women to participate in the above mentioned Study Session. Please note that this call is open only for women!
Holding an activity for one gender only is quite untypical for FYEG. However, we deem it necessary to reserve a place for women only this time in order to be able to discuss gender roles, women in politics and the system of power from an explicitely female perspective.
During the Study Session, we will analyse gender roles in society and poltics; we will discuss the maleness or not of power; we will try to find answers to the question why women are less involved in politics and will also have a close look into the structures of our own organisations and whether they promote or prevent gender equality. Please find more details below!
Profile of participants:
The participants have to be women and should be younger than 31 (a few exceptions are possible, however). You should be interested in gender issues, willing to invest time for the preparation of the Study Session, willing to contribute to the discussions and open for opinions that contradict to your own. The Study Session will be a pretty intensive week and full participation is required. The working language will be English, so you should be able to express your opinion in English; although I want to stress that hardly any of us will be a native speaker and that mistakes and the use of hand and feet during communication are normal and welcome. We aim to have a geographical balance and we especially invite young women who are active on local/regional/national/international level. Members of Member Organisations of FYEG will have priority but we do not restrict the participation to them. Everybody who is interesting in FYEG and the topic can apply. It is absolutely necessary that you are able to attend the full duration of the Study Session.
Travel costs, food and accomodation will be paid and provided by the Council of Europe. There will be a participation fee of 45 EUR which will be deducted from your travel reimbursement.
If you want to apply please fill in the attached application form and send it back to ska at fyeg.org by 29th of January 2006. The participants will be selected in the first half of February.
