Our aim

By inviting as many professionals as possible to write a feature and make a video about one of the many aspects of gender equality in politics we want to make clear why this is still an issue in a modern democracy such as Europe. The “Journalistic Contest, Gender Equality in Politics” would like to challenge European students, young journalists and professionals to get involved with the main decision makers on this topic at international level.

By creating online media exposure, the responsible politicians get a chance to explain why a modern democracy such as Europe is still predominantly managed by men and share their opinions about the effect this has on the society in general. We like to stimulate awareness for this topic within this group.
