Über das Projekt

Das TAG-Projekt nutzt die Gender-Thematik als Ausgangspunkt und als aktuelles Instrument, um erwachsene Lernende zu ermutigen, die EU-Geschichte und gemeinsame Werte zu verstehen, sowie sie für LLL zu ermutigen und in ihren sozialen Kreisen aktiver zu werden. Gleichzeitig bringt es den Wert und die Rolle der Frauen im Laufe der Geschichte ans Licht.

In diesem Projekt werden die europäischen Partner aus Rumänien, Spanien, Slowenien, Deutschland, Italien, Frankreich und Portugal die Rechte älterer Frauen durch die Brille der nationalen Kulturen und der europäischen Grundrechte betrachten.

Wenn Sie ein Pädagoge sind, der mit älteren Lernenden arbeitet und mehr Einblick in die Vergangenheit und Gegenwart Ihrer Lernenden gewinnen möchte, bleiben Sie bei uns. Verpassen Sie keines der Materialien, die wir entwickeln, um Ihnen und Ihren Lernenden zu helfen.

UNSERE VISION

Als Gesellschaft beschreiben wir Frauen als schön, charmant, reizend, intelligent, lebhaft, mütterlich, gute Ehefrauen, manchmal auch als hart, manipulativ oder böse. Wenn sie wütend sind, gelten sie als hysterisch. Wenn sie ihre Stimme erheben, sind sie schrill. Wenn sie erfolgreich sind, werden sie als ehrgeizig bezeichnet. Aber sie werden selten als unabhängig und mächtig, wichtig, mutig, frei und herausragend in ihrer eigenen weiblichen Art beschrieben.

Männer sind berechtigt, mächtig zu sein, und sie haben das Recht, ihre Macht zu genießen und auszuüben. Die Sprache, die sie verwenden, gehört ihnen, ebenso wie die Konzepte und Urteile, die sie vertreten. Männer haben unsere Gesellschaften dominiert, und sie haben ihre eigene Geschichte geschrieben.

Aber auch Frauen waren Wissenschaftlerinnen, Chirurginnen, Universitätsprofessorinnen, Aktivistinnen; auch Frauen sind Leistungsträgerinnen. Sie machen die Hälfte der Bevölkerung aus, und sie haben Anspruch auf die gleichen Rechte wie Männer, Rechte, für die sie nie aufhören sollten zu kämpfen.

Jede Frau ist einzigartig. Einige Frauen haben ein starkes Gefühl dafür, wer sie sind, während andere noch auf dem Weg sind, das herauszufinden. Frauen können mehr darüber lernen, wer sie sind und wie sie ihre Ziele erreichen können, unterstützt durch die Beispiele anderer starker Frauen – wir können diese Frauen als Vorbilder bezeichnen – wie alle Frauen sind sie außergewöhnlich, aber ihre großartigen Leistungen wurden heruntergespielt und vergessen.

Wenn Frauen an der Erwachsenenbildung für ältere Menschen teilnehmen, können sie ihre umfangreichen Erfahrungen, ihr Wissen und ihr Gender-Kapital in die Lernerfahrung einbringen. Programmentwicklerinnen und -entwickler sowie Pädagoginnen und Pädagogen von (älteren) Erwachsenen sollten das verborgene, von Frauen erzeugte Wissen nutzen, es in ihre Bildungsprogramme einbauen und Frauen ermutigen, stolz auf ihr Geschlecht und ihr Alter zu sein, während sie die Sichtbarkeit aller Frauen fördern.

Gerda Taro
1910 - 1937

Pioneer of war photography
Gerda Taro, nee Gerta Pohorylle, was born in Stuttgart and educated in Leipzig, Germany. As she is from a Jewish family, she flees from the Nazis to Paris in 1933. There she lives a bohemian lifestyle with her friend Ruth Cerf and eventually meets Endre Ernő Friedmann, better known today as Robert Capa. Together, they start documenting the Spanish Civil War in 1935, after Gerda had invented their alter egos in order to better sell Endre's and her own pictures. Inspired by their own political convictions, they only take pictures of the the fight of the republican troops against the rebellious franquist troops. Both of them try to be as close to the action as possible - a goal which eventually led to Gerda's death. Despite the fact that her pictures only cover 1 year of the war, her pictures are those that went around the world. Together with Robert Capa and with David Seymour, she developed modern war photography as we know it today during this short period of time. Since she officially was Capa's agent and he sold many of her pictures as his own, it took until the 2000s until people began to recognize her as an artist in her own right rather than only his partner: In 2007, the so-called Mexican Suitcase was found in Mexico City, a suitcase containing thousands of negatives believed lost by Capa, Taro and Seymour. Since then, many photographs originally attributed to Capa are known to have been taken by Gerda. However, during her short life, Taro was well known and when she was killed in 1937 by a tank, - she was only 26 - thousands of people attended her funeral in Paris. The funeral procession, led by Pablo Neruda and Louis Aragon, became a demonstration against fascism.

Marie-Claire Chevalier
1955 - 2022

The one whose trial for illegal abortion changed the law against abortion in France
In 1971, Marie-Claire Chevalier was 16 years old when she became pregnant after being raped by a boy two years older than her in high school. The young woman asked her mother to help her have an abortion. The mother turned to an underground doctor, but her daughter suffered a hemorrhage that forced her to the hospital. Her rapist, arrested for stealing a car, decides to turn her in against his own freedom. She is directly accused, as are four other women, including her mother, because in 1971 the voluntary termination of a pregnancy was illegal in France and punishable by six months to two years in prison. She was then convicted at the Bobigny trial and all were defended by lawyer Gisèle Halimi. Gisèle Halimi made of this trial and of Marie-Claire Chevalier a political symbol for the right to abortion. The case will forever mark French history and symbolize real progress for women's rights. Extremely mediatized, the trial closely followed by many personalities ends on a brilliant victory. Three years later this judgement, things started to move. This event contributed to the adoption of the Veil law and the legalization of abortion in France in 1975.

Having suffered greatly from this trial, she attempted suicide. Then, she chose to return to anonymity by changing her name. At her death, she received tributes from the President of the Republic, Emmanuel Macron and feminist associations.

Maria Lejárraga
1874 – 1974

She was writing and her husband harvesting the glory, fame and money!
Writer, feminist, deputy, polyglot and socialist who opposed to the death penalty and legal prostitution. She advocated for education, work and equal rights for women in Spain. A very open-minded and visionary woman who had to pay a high price imposed by her gender.

María Lejárraga comes from the region of La Rioja from an economically stable middle class family. She was able to receive good education and became a teacher. During her teaching career she discovered her passion for writing. She was very talented and ready to share her ideas and stories with the world. But, that´s where she bumped into a big obstacle. At the beginning of the XX century being a female writer was seen as immoral work, especially for an educator. If she had risked meeting her goals, she could have lost her teaching job. She found a solution to this problem in her marriage by publishing her works under her husband's name. So, she was writing and waiting at home and he was the one receiving praise and applause at the premiers of the plays. Before dying, her husband confirmed the rumours circulating in theatre circles that she was the true author of his works.
