Gender Equality in Academia and Research
ProGender Project – Centre for Gender Studies, Panteion University of Social and Political Sciences (GR)
The Centre for Gender Studies of Panteion University created “ProGender: A Digital Hub on Gender, the COVID-19 crisis and its Aftermath”. The Hub addresses gender equality during the COVID-19 pandemic in several thematic areas: (1) gender, care and labour; (2) gender-based violence; (3) women and gender in science; (4) gender and communities; and (5) women in governance. The project is based on a series of online and offline activities and deliverables that facilitate exchange of ideas, research findings and perspectives on the gender aspects of the COVID-19 pandemic. Funded by EEA funds, the project sees the exchange of know-how between Iceland, Norway and Greece. During lockdowns, when Greek universities were closed, it created a hub for academics, students, researchers, activists and policymakers to meet and debate different aspects of gender and the COVID-19 crisis.
