The Commission of the Bishops’ Conferences of the European Union (COMECE) and the Federation of Catholic Family Associations in Europe (FAFCE) jointly organise a conference to exchange on the concrete experience of women after these times of pandemic.
The pandemic affected Europeans in all areas of their life: access to education, work, family, social life, transportation, leisure, etc. The most striking impact of successive lockdowns have been the emergence of new forms of work arrangements, often blurring the frontier between work and family space.
The European Commission published in September its European Care Strategy, as as one answer to the challenges women face in their everyday life.
Echoing to this Strategy, and in light of FAFCE recent Board Resolution on “Family unpaid care work: the heart of intergenerational solidarity”, this event aims to share the reality of women and mothers at the European level.
