RECLAIM: Empowering the European Female Future

Empowering the European Female Future

In 2024 there is still a long way to go to create gender equality in the world and also in Europe. Even today, women are still underrepresented in political decision-making, and many women also state that politics is male-dominated because they are often not trusted enough. In reality, there are many causes for this imbalance – but where is the best place to start to eliminate it?

With the „RECLAIM | Empowering the European Female Future“ project, we want to make a contribution to giving women a voice in society and in debates and encouraging them to participate in policy-making despite structural disadvantages. „RECLAIM“ is aimed at female activists and local politicians from Europe. It aims to raise awareness of gender inequalities, find ways to deal with them and empower each other – online and on the street.

The project contributes to supporting resilient women in digital space in order to give them the skills and experiences to make their voice heard! The project combines training sessions and best-case sharing on feminist European policy. It focuses on effective communication and leadership skills in order to be able to participate effectively in political discourse and decision-making; strengthening media skills to be more confident on social media; tackling digital hate speech and gender disinformation; and creating a European support network for local politicians and activists. Because despite all the hurdles that women can face on the way to equality, the following applies: No woman is ever alone. Because democratic processes need more than just one half of society.

The project duration is from 2023-2025.
