"… because I’m a woman?"

The EESC will host an artistic performance entitled "…because I'm a woman?" to mark International Women's Day, on 8 March 2022.

A short 10-minute video by the talented young Polish artist Patrycja Alenkuć will feature a dance performance complemented by storytelling.

The concept behind the performance is highlighting how resilient women are despite not being given enough support and regardless of their age, class, the country they live in, their profession, or other factors; hence the concept takes an intergenerational and at the same time a European, or even better, a universal approach.

The performance will be one of the highlights of the EESC's Conference on "Women in the labour market", taking place on 8 March, with the video bringing the day's events to an artistic conclusion.

This initiative has come about following  a proposal from the Ad Hoc Group on Equality (AdHGE). The event will be webstreamed on the EESC's website and social media channels.
