On August 15, the “Feminist Report of the Women’s Human Rights Observatory for the G20 in civil society” was presented in UTNBA’s Aula Magna.

Eng. Christian Grillo, Secretary of Culture and University Extension, welcomed the attendees and speakers and stressed that “UTNBA has been working for years to make women visible in the institution and to promote spaces free of gender discrimination.”

“Among our latest institutional measures,” he continued, “are the enactment of the Protocol against gender-based violence and a training course on gender perspective. But in addition to our institutional commitment, from the beginning our desire was to walk step by step with civil society organizations, with those who for years are committed to defending and conquering the rights of women. “

The Secretary also stressed that “for this reason, it was a joy when we were invited to participate in the w20 digital inclusion commission. There we found a collaborative, innovative and reflective space on the issues still pending at the national and global levels to ensure the full inclusion of women in the fundamental rights of education, work, culture and in the media contributing to these issues, like technologies.”

During the summit, the final documents prepared by two of the W20 commissions were presented: Digital inclusion and labor inclusion.

The speakers were Mabel Bianco. president of the Foundation for the Study and Research of Women (FEIM) and general coordinator of the Observatory which wrote the report; Monique Alstchul, Executive Director of the Women in Equality Foundation; Dafne Plou, network coordinator for Latin America in the Women’s Rights Program of the Association for the Advancement of Communications (APC); Mariela Belkis, Director of Amnesty International Argentina; Natalia Gherardi director of the Latin American Justice and Gender Team (ELA); Victoria Gallo, from the ELA Policy area; Corina Rodriguez Enriquez, member of the Development Alternatives with Women for a New Era (DAWN).

The organization of the Conference was in charge of Women in Equality (MEI), Wikimedia and Argentina Network of Gender, Science and Technology (RAGCYT), which are part of the Digital Inclusion commission. The School participated in both the commission and the preparation of the final report.

The event was closed by Mabel Bianco and Mariana Marqués on behalf of Amnesty Argentina; both coordinators of the C20 Genre group.
