A Propos Du Projet

Le projet TAG se base sur les questions de genre comme point de départ et comme un moyen moderne pour encourager les apprenants adultes à comprendre l’histoire et les valeurs communes de l’UE, ainsi que pour les inciter à participer à l’apprentissagecontinu et à être plus actifs dans leurs cercles sociaux. En parallèle, il met en lumière la valeur et le rôle des femmes à travers l’histoire.

Dans ce projet, les partenaires européens de Roumanie, d’Espagne, de Slovénie, d’Allemagne, d’Italie, de France et du Portugal examineront les droits des femmes âgées sous l’angle des cultures nationales et des droits européens fondamentaux.

Notre Vision

En tant que société, nous décrivons les femmes comme belles, charmantes, ravissantes, intelligentes, vives, maternelles, bonnes épouses, parfois dures, manipulatrices ou méchantes. Si elles sont en colère, on dit qu’elles sont hystériques. Si elles élèvent la voix, elles sont criardes. On les qualifie d’ambitieuses si elles ont du succès. Mais elles sont rarement décrites comme indépendantes et puissantes, importantes, courageuses, libres et exceptionnelles à leur manière.

Les hommes sont légitimement puissants, et ils ont le droit de jouir de leur pouvoir et de l’exercer. Le langage qu’ils utilisent leur appartient, tout comme les concepts et les jugements qu’ils portent. Les hommes ont dominé nos sociétés, et ils ont écrit leur propre histoire.

Mais les femmes aussi ont été des scientifiques, des chirurgiens, des professeurs d’université, des militantes ; les femmes aussi sont des battantes. Elles représentent la moitié de la population et elles ont les mêmes droits que les hommes, des droits pour lesquels elles ne doivent jamais cesser de se battre.

Chaque femme est unique. Certaines femmes savent déjà très bien qui elles sont, tandis que d’autres sont encore en train de le découvrir. Les femmes peuvent en apprendre davantage sur leur identité et sur la manière d’atteindre leurs objectifs en s’appuyant sur les exemples donnés par d’autres femmes fortes – nous pouvons appeler ces femmes des modèles – comme toutes les femmes, elles sont exceptionnelles, mais leurs grandes réalisations ont été dépréciées et oubliées.

Lorsque les femmes participent à l’éducation des adultes âgés, elles peuvent apporter leurs vastes expériences, leurs connaissances et leur capital sexospécifique à l’expérience d’apprentissage. Les concepteurs de programmes ainsi que les éducateurs d’adultes (âgés) devraient utiliser les connaissances acquises par les femmes, les incorporer dans leurs programmes éducatifs et encourager les femmes à être fières de leur sexe et de leur âge tout en promouvant la visibilité de toutes les femmes.

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.
