European Women's Action (EFA)
About our organization
Cooperative of Womens Culture
Our Organization was founded after German reunification in 1989, a merger of a German-French initiative by free lance women artists and scientists.
Our aims:.Promotion of the specific cultural identity of women expressed by their creations.
Presentation of what women have already obtained during the last decades in the field of gender equity and what they still wish to be realized.Emphasizing women knowledge and works by informing the large public.
European wealth consists not only in economic power but also in cultural variety and works in common where women though their particular importance, however, should get much better consideration and appreciation.
Continuous researches during the last decades of the 20th Century have brought out important knowledge about women cultural perfomances either forgotten or even never diffused.
In this way, actually significant elements for women identity have emerged, elements which will be important for future generations giving women self-consciousness and creating a positive image of their value which are essential for the new cultural identity of the Europeans, both women and men so that the youth should look forward confiding in future.
We ae going to create a larger platform for the great cultural heritage of women diffusing it between a broader public by different performances, meetings, congresses but also by publishing books, calendars, audio plays and films.
Particular attention has always been paid to the question of a specific cultural identity of women.
This is our way to gender mainstreaming, establishing a worldwide network with similar cultural organizations guaranteeing the long lasting development of our work.
Our projects habe been financed by Berlin Senat and by Ministries of "Bund" and "Länder".
