UdG Institutional Statement
The annual 25N commemoration, the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, invites us again this year to reflect critically on the sickness that is violence against women, in all its different expressions. As part of this reflection, we as universities must take on the responsibility of spreading awareness and channelling reports of violence. Above all, we must act as spaces for social transformation. The universities of today form critical citizens, taking on a determining role in the transformation of the society of tomorrow. It is crucial that in the classrooms of our university community, students are taught the appropriate respect and commitment when it comes to the value of gender equality.
You can view the 25N manifestoes from the different organisations within the UdG below.
The University of Girona has for years now been openly committed to promoting education in the value of gender equality, in a cross-disciplinary way across all our areas of competence. Within the framework of the commemoration of the 25N International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, our institutional commitment is made all the more clear by our extensive programme of academic events, which you will be able to consult on this web page. Considered as a whole, these lectures, workshops and training courses have been designed with the aim of becoming spaces in which to reflect and call out the sickness that is violence against women, in all its different expressions. We sincerely hope that they are of great interest to all of you and invite you to take part.
