Gender Equality

Gender... Are we talking about it ?

In the context of 25 November, International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, the Institut Gaston Berger offers several spaces for meetings and discussion, in collaboration with the Marie Curie Library and the CASI (INSA Lyon Social Action Committee).


Round table on gender violence.

With the presence of the associations Filactions and Impact

Thursday, 22 November: 12.30-1.45pm BMC Booth

  • Gender-based and sexual harassment and violence - what are we talking about?
  • The missions and activities of Filactions and Impact.
  • Time for discussion and questions

Self-defence classes for female students

Thursday, 22 and 29 November: 2.15-5.15pm (2 workshops of 3 hours each)

Déclic workshop led by the Impact association. The purpose of self-defence is to:

  • reduce the violence around us;
  • become aware of our own strength;
  • build self-confidence.

Registration required Limited number of places. Attendance at both sessions is mandatory.

Improvised theatrical creation: Les Ordinaires by the Collectif Impro-Concept

Performance (1 hour) then discussion with the audience.

Monday, 26 November: 12.15-1.45pm Staff building (CASI)

‘Les Ordinaires is an improvised feminist show that deals with gender-based violence. The show was born out of a common desire to deal in an open and off-beat way with the social mask and societal pressures that we experience and put others through on a daily basis’. 

Closing projection: Mustang by Deniz Gamze Ergüven (2015)

Tuesday, 27 November: 6.30 pm Émilie du Châtelet lecture theatre (BMC)
‘It's the beginning of summer. In a remote village in Turkey, Lale and her four sisters come home from school playing with boys and trigger a scandal with unexpected consequences. The family home is gradually turning into a prison, housekeeping classes are replacing school and marriages are starting to be arranged.
The five sisters, driven by the same desire for freedom, push back against the boundaries imposed on them’. 



A poster campaign on campus to inform and raise awareness.

Deployed in various services and departments of INSA Lyon from the beginning of November.

Works honoured at the Marie Curie Library
