The International Women’s Day is a campaign day on which women’s rights and gender equality are being promoted worldwide. On one hand, the day celebrates the achievements in the women’s rights movement, on the other hand it creates awareness on the continuing discrimination and inequality.
For this year’s International Women’s Day, the City of Tübingen invites to an online-event which is streamed live from the Tübingen town hall on Monday, March 8th, from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. Under the slogan “The crisis does not hit everyone the same – women’s perspectives on the pandemic” the sociologist Professor Jutta Allmendinger from the science block Berlin will speak. Prof. Allmendinger has been studying the equality between women and men for 30 years: “… Corona has let the true social conditions stand out like a burning glass: men are working, women are also working – and taking care of the children. Men earn money, women also earn money – however, only a bit extra. Part-time and parental leave are still mostly women’s matters, leadership positions and high salaries men’s matters,” says Allmendinger. Additionally, artists from Tübingen invite to a joint celebration, dancing and singing in front of the screen: Elke Volz, songwriter and lead vocalist of the all-women band “Kick la Luna”, the soprano Barig Nalbantian and Hazelle Kurig from the Rainbow Dance Factory. Everyone interested can participate under www.tuebingen.de/frauentag
