Il Progetto

Il progetto TAG utilizza il discusso tema del “genere” come punto di partenza e strumento innovativo per incoraggiare gli studenti adulti e anziani ad approfondire la storia dell’Unione Europea e i suoi valori, nonché per supportarli nel processo di apprendimento continuo e aiutarli ad essere più attivi a livello sociale. 

Allo stesso tempo il progetto vuole dare luce al valore e al ruolo delle donne nel corso della storia. I partner europei di Romania, Spagna, Slovenia, Germania, Italia, Francia e Portogallo esaminano i diritti delle donne anziane attraverso la lente delle culture nazionali e dei diritti europei fondamentali. 

Se sei un educatore di studenti adulti/anziani e desideri approfondire la conoscenza dei tuoi studenti relativamente al loro passato e presente, rimani connesso! Non perderti i materiali che stiamo sviluppando per aiutare te e i tuoi studenti.

La Nostra Visione

Nella nostra società descriviamo le donne come belle, affascinanti, deliziose, intelligenti, brillanti, materne, buone mogli, a volte dure, manipolatrici o malvagie. Se sono arrabbiate, si dice che siano isteriche. Se alzano la voce, sono stridule. Sono definite ambiziose se hanno successo, ma raramente sono descritte come indipendenti e potenti, importanti, coraggiose, libere ed eccezionali nel loro essere femminile.

Gli uomini invece sono legittimamente potenti e hanno il diritto di godere ed esercitare il loro potere. Il linguaggio che usano è il loro, così come i concetti e i giudizi che detengono. Gli uomini hanno dominato le nostre società e hanno scritto la propria storia.

Ma anche le donne sono state scienziate, chirurghi, docenti universitari, attiviste; anche le donne hanno successo. Costituiscono metà della popolazione e hanno gli stessi diritti degli uomini, diritti per i quali non dovrebbero mai smettere di combattere.

Le donne devono capire chi sono, come comunicare con gli uomini, come crescere e diventare chi vogliono essere, aiutate da forti modelli femminili, donne eccezionali sia del passato che del presente che sono così spesso sminuite e dimenticate.

Quando le donne partecipano all’educazione degli adulti più anziani, possono contribuire con la loro ampia esperienza, conoscenza e bagaglio personale. Gli educatori e formatori di adulti anziani dovrebbero utilizzare la conoscenza intrinseca del femminile, incorporarla nei programmi educativi e incoraggiare le donne ad essere orgogliose del loro genere e della loro età, promuovendo nel contempo la visibilità di tutte le donne.

In questo progetto, i diritti delle donne anziane saranno esaminati attraverso la lente delle culture nazionali e dei diritti europei fondamentali.

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.
