Plus for Women 45+ (2005 – 2008)

Institute for Public Affairs (IVO) has issued a CD summarizing the results of the project Plus for Women 45+ (2005 – 2008).

The project was carried out as part of the EU Community Initiative EQUAL, which was financed by the European Social Fund. The project paid particular attention to women over 45, who often face double discrimination on the labor market – both as women and as persons in their mature years. It set the following goals:

1.      Learning more about the life and work of women over 45 and examining gender and age stereotypes in Slovak society.
2.      Disseminating research findings and making them available to target groups as well as to the general public.
3.      Carrying out gender and age sensitive education as well as a social campaign to increase society’s gender and age sensitivity, to empower women over 45 and to strengthen their status on the labor market.

The project Plus for Women 45+ was implemented by a development partnership comprising of four Slovak organizations: the Institute for Public Affairs; the FOCUS agency; the EsFem civic association and the Hlava 98  civic association. The project was carried out under the leadership of Zora Bútorová, PhD.

The Plus for Women 45+ development partnership was part of transnational partnership European Gender Equality and Diversity Network   consisting of five national development partnerships: “MONIKKO” of Finland;  “Give me a hand “ of Lithuania;  “Women @ Europe” of Germany; “Coherent counseling” of Denmark; and “Plus for Women 45+” of Slovakia.

CD offers four books summarizing findings of the whole research endeavor in 2005 – 2008. The first two publications (Ženy, muži a vek v štatistikách trhu práce [Women, Men and Age in Labor Market Statistics] and Tu a teraz: sondy do života žien 45+ [Here and Now. Probes into the Lives of Women 45+]) have an extensive English summary. The forth book (She and He in Slovakia. Gender and Age in Slovakia) presents the English version of the third book, which is in Slovak (Ona a on na Slovensku. Zaostrené na rod a vek). CD also includes proceedings of an international conference Women 45+ on Labor Market: Gender, Age and Equality of Opportunities organized in Bratislava in 2007(in English), as well as basic outputs of the social campaign My mom wants to work, which was carried out in electronic and print media in 2008.
