La Journée internationale des femmes

À l’occasion de la Journée internationale des femmes, les chefs des agences et entreprises communes de l’UE publient une déclaration conjointe sur le harcèlement.

Chaque année depuis le début du XXe siècle, le 8 mars, le monde célèbre la Journée internationale des femmes, qui vise à reconnaître leurs réalisations dans différents domaines, à défendre leurs droits et à promouvoir l’égalité entre les femmes et les hommes.

Cette année, la campagne aura pour thème général «#PressforProgress motivating and uniting friends, colleagues and whole communities to think, act and be gender inclusive» (#L’heureestauprogrès: rassembler et inciter amis, collègues et la communauté dans son ensemble à intégrer les femmes dans nos façons de penser, d’agir et d’être).

Les Nations unies célèbrent cette journée sous le slogan: «L’heure est venue: les activistes rurales et urbaines transforment la vie des femmes», qui fait écho à deux objectifs importants du Programme de développement durable à l’horizon 2030, à savoir l’objectif 5: parvenir à l’égalité des sexes et autonomiser toutes les femmes et les filles; et l’objectif 4: assurer à tous une éducation équitable, inclusive et de qualité et des possibilités d’apprentissage tout au long de la vie.

Cette année, pour mettre l’accent sur cette journée, les chefs des agences et entreprises communes de l’UE ont rédigé une déclaration conjointe sur le harcèlement (ci-après en anglais), à laquelle le Centre de traduction adhère pleinement.

Joint declaration on harassment

Date: 8 March, 2018

logo EU Agencies Together, we the Heads of EU Agencies and Joint Undertakings commit to zero tolerance towards sexual harassment and we cannot and will not accept harassment of any form in our agencies. We take it upon ourselves to communicate to our staff that harassment in the workplace is never acceptable. We have committed ourselves in accordance with existing laws and particularly the staff regulations, to promote diversity at work and provide our staff with a trusted place in which to work.

Equality is one of the fundamental values on which the European Union is built. Gender-based violence, including sexual harassment, is one of the most extreme manifestations of inequality and discrimination.

Sexual violence and harassment contradict the principle of gender equality and equal treatment. They constitute gender-based discrimination in employment. Cases of sexual harassment and bullying, while significantly underreported, are a matter of health, safety and well-being in the workplace and need to be responded to effectively and in accordance with existing laws.

The European Union has established decentralised agencies to carry out specific legal, operational, technical or scientific tasks within the EU. These agencies are autonomous EU bodies and add value by helping to implement policies, enhance dialogue and share information and expertise on a range of topics. EU agencies also provide practical support to Member States and the EU institutions. More information about the EU agencies’ network can be found at https://euagencies.eu
