Written by FDM

“Women empowerment, a means to fight against violence” is the theme of a study day scheduled for November 27 in Essaouira, on the initiative of the El Khir Women’s Association for socio-economic promotion and women leadership.

Initiated in partnership with the feminist NGO for peace (CFD) of Switzerland, the association Essaouira-Mogador and the delegation of Entraide Nationale, this day is in light of the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women as the organizers explained.

This meeting, which is also part of the El Khir Association’s project on “strengthening the economic capacities of women”, will see the participation of a range of experts, lawyers, doctors, artists and associative actors, according to the same source.

“The organization of this study day testifies to the conviction of this association that the empowerment of the fairer sex is not limited only to the economic component but extends also to other areas that remain until then dominated by men, ” reads a note introducing this event.

According to the organizers, this meeting aims to highlight the efforts made by the El Khir Association for the empowerment of women, through training and professional integration. It also offers the opportunity to provide answers to several questions, including whether there is a social environment that promotes women’s empowerment, if there are actually measures or an applicable platform with local policies that is responsible for applying the gender approach and achieving equality between the two sexes.
