Women in Culture and Science Symposium

by UNESCO Chair on Cultural Rights - University of Copenhagen
International Women’s Day
Paris, March 8th, 2018

We would like to invite students, representatives from civil society, businesses, international organisations and the scientific community to showcase the power of cross sector collaboration to advance the rights of women and girls to take part in scientific development and cultural life.

This symposium is held in celebration of the International Women’s Day. The program includes specialists in the fields of the right to culture and the right to science who will speak and gather in two panels to debate with the audience.

Culture has been misused to justify restrictions to the full enjoyment of human rights and freedom of women and girls. Our first panel examines the position of women in scientific freedom and creativity, reflects on the importance of having women involved in scientific endeavours and explores the challenges preventing women and girls to access, participate in, and contribute to cultural life and science.

The second part of our day will focus on the latest developments in authoritative guidance, discuss the new General Comment on the Right to Science, the Status of Scientific Researchers, as well as the potential of blockchain to improve the scientific process and the independence of women.

Music and science are two ways of using a common set of tools for thinking. In true festivity spirit, artist Nukâka Coster-Waldau and four musicians from Greenland and Denmark will present us with live sessions at the beginning and at the end of the program… more
