FemCities is concerned with what city and municipal administrations can do to promote women, girls and gender equality. The network supports the exchange of successful models in the field of local and regional women’s policy and enforces the lobbying for equality issues in Europe. Gender equality issues and opportunities for action of municipalities are at the center of FemCities without neglecting the exchange and transfer of know-how with actors from other fields. We organize one conference per year in a specific city by showing the city’s best practices, discussing challenges and inviting international expert speakers.
Relevant administrations (on gender equality/equal opportunities/women) in European cities and municipalities are invited to be network partners. NGOs as well as different other networks may join as associate partners. Partners neither have to pay any fees nor do they bear any (legal) obligations. The network’s goal is the exchange of ideas and practices.
Partners may host the annual FemCities conference by choosing their respective topic. The FemCities coordination team will provide different necessary support and will work closely together with the host partner. As a partner you will receive quarterly newsletters with information about the network’s activities, calls to share best practices and receive news about the next conference. Partners are also invited to attend non-regular smaller bilateral meetings or online discussions.
All partners as well as representatives from the academia, the economy and relevant bodies are welcome to join the network's activities and to organize and participate in FemCities events.
