CorD Magazine’s Event Empowered Women Held

Strength Lies In Equality

The legal framework for gender equality is largely in place, but social taboos and habits are very strong and difficult to break.

Empowered Women event organized by CorD magazine and aim was dedicated to strengthening the fight for gender equality and empowering women, especially the vulnerable. Participants heard that there have been important and good changes, but that society still has a lot of work to do.

Neda Lukić, editor-in-chief of CorD magazine, emphasized in her welcome address that all topics of women’s empowerment must be the focus of both state and society as a whole, especially in local communities.

Professor Dr Zorana Mihajlović, Deputy Prime Minister of the Government of Serbia and president of the Coordination Body for Gender Equality, said that there has been progress in the empowerment of women, but that it is not enough. Differences are most often seen in salaries, by the time they reach retirement, the income gap will increase to 50 percent.

The meeting at the City Hall was also attended by H.E. Annika Ben David, Ambassador of Sweden. She pointed out that it is very important that the example of gender equality should be firmly established in the family. In addition to a good legal framework, Sweden has a number of educational examples that are useful for girls and for boys to help develop an awareness of the need for gender equality.
