"If we want to empower women, we also need to redefine the notion of masculinity"

In March, four student associations on the Reims campus; Politiqu’elles, HeForShe, SAGA, and The Feminist Society joined forces to celebrate Gender Equality Week. The objective was to bring students together to address gender equality issues such as women in politics and business; to revisit feminism and notions of masculinity; and to reflect upon fundamental questions about sexuality.

Sciences Po is committed to promoting gender equality among all of the institution's stakeholders. In 2015, Sciences Po President Frédéric Mion joined UN Women’s HeForShe solidarity movement as an IMPACT 10x10x10 champion, making Sciences Po one of 10 universities around the world committed to taking bold, game-changing action to achieve gender equality within and beyond their institutions. More recently, Sciences Po signed the Charter for gender sensitive governance in research and higher education institutions (Pdf, 336 Ko).
