Website of project Early Care and the Role of Men is online


It is our pleisure to inform you that the website of ECaRoM project www.ecarom.eu  is onlne in six european languages - English, German, Bulgarian, Italian, Slovenian and Lithuanian. The Project aims at promoting the concept of caring masculinities so that at a young age, children and especially boys are taught about the importance of care for themselves, others, and the environment. The Project also teaches how care professions are addressed in Early Childhood Education and Care (ECEC) services and primary schools, and how this impacts their further educational/professional choices.

The website contains information about the project, partnership and very soon we will publish our first results - national and transnational reports on the needs assessment on gender sensitive early education in Austria, Bulgaria, Germany, Italy, Slovenia and Lithuania. Transnational report will compare results and will give recomendations at European level. 

Next steps for partners are to organise the trainings for teachers in ECECs and primary schools on overcoming gender stereotypes and promoting the concept of caring masculinities and to prepare the national awareness raising events. For more information, please visit regularly the website of the project and like our  Facebook page

16 Days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence


On the 25th of November starts the International 16 of Activism against Gender-Based Violence  campaign. The year 2015 marks the 24th year of the campaign, initiated in 1991 and this year the Center of Women's Studies and Policies Foundation will focus again on a topic, which is not so much discussed neither in Bulgaria, nor in Europe - the role of the private business for prevention, protection and reintegration of women suffering gender-based violence outside their workplace.

As a partner in the two years' project CARVE - Companies Against gendeR based ViolEnce , co-financed by the EU Daphne III Program, CWSP made a study in the period February-June 2015 on the level of information, attitudes and practices in companies in Bulgaria for prevention, protection and reintegration of women, victims of violence, happenning outside their workplace. Look at the results.
