This year, the EESC honors outstanding citizens’ initiatives that champion equal opportunities for women and men and contribute to empowering women in society and the economy. Ang European Economic and Social Committee (EESC) ay inihayag na napili nito ang limang mga finalists mula sa mga 177 na mga proyekto na natanggap para sa Civil Society Prize 2019, na nakatuon sa pagpapalakas ng kababaihan at paglaban para sa pagkakapantay-pantay ng kasarian. Ang mga maiikling lista ay mula sa Belgium, Bulgaria, Finland, Italy at Poland.

The award ceremony will be held on 12 December during the EESC plenary session in Brussels, when the final ranking will be revealed. The total prize money of €50,000 will be shared among the five nominees. The winner of the first prize will go home with €14,000 and the four runners-up will each receive €9,000. This year’s theme, More women in Europe’s society and economy, attracted the second highest number of entries in over a decade-long history of the prize, just behind the 2016 theme of migration. The candidates are from no fewer than 27 Member States, demonstrating the widespread interest of citizens and civil society organisations in taking action to tackle gender inequalities, which still loom large in Europe. EESC Vice-President for Communication Isabel Caño Aguilar said: “The many award applications we received show that gender equality is at the heart of civil society’s aspirations. They highlight women’s work and their innovative role in society. They promote dynamic, visionary, courageous, bold and strong women. They address the specific needs of vulnerable or disadvantaged women and tackle gender discrimination and stereotypes in all areas of life.” The five nominees, listed here in alphabetical order, are:
Proyekto ng Fairy Tales, sa pamamagitan ng Bulgaria ng NAIA Association, nakikipag-ugnayan sa mga bata ng pre-school at kanilang mga magulang sa pagbabasa ng mga klasikal na mga fairy tale mula sa ibang pananaw at pag-ampon ng isang kritikal na diskarte sa mga stereotyped na papel ng kasarian na na-install sa mga batang lalaki at babae mula sa pinakaunang edad. Nais ng proyekto na hikayatin ang mga bata na tumingin sa labas ng tradisyonal na mga tungkulin sa kasarian upang maipahayag ang kanilang personal na potensyal at makita na maraming iba't ibang mga pagkakataon ang naroroon para sa kapwa mga batang babae at lalaki.
#mimmitkooda (Women Code), isang programa ng Finnish Software and eBusiness Association (Ohjelmisto- ja e-negosyo ry) ay sumasama sa stereotype na ang mga developer ng software ay dapat na lalaki bilang default. Ang programa ay matagumpay na nagdadala ng mas maraming mga mahuhusay na kababaihan sa industriya ng software at tinutulungan silang lumipat patungo sa mas mahusay na mga bayad na trabaho at karera.
Polish Women’s Strike is the largest women’s movement in Poland and now seeks to empower invisible and ignored women activists in small and middle-sized cities as they represent the major force for social change. The movement made world headlines with its Black Monday strike in October 2016, when it organised over 1 500 protests and marches in 150 Polish cities to call for women’s and civic rights and condemned the government clampdown on the independent judiciary.
Ang Brussels Binder is a database of female policy experts which helps ensure better representation of women in European policy debates. Compiled and run by a group of dedicated volunteers in Belgium, its purpose is to put an end to male privilege in the “EU bubble” and to become a go-to resource for finding female policy experts. This will improve the gender balance of panels and the media in Brussels and make sure that laws and policies take into account the specific needs and opinions of women.
Women’s Toponymyan association from Italy, believes that toponymy – the study of place names – reveals the way society sees its members. Its research has shown that in Italy, only 7.8 streets were named after women for every 100 named after men, and that the majority of female place names are of religious origin. Women’s Toponymy aims to increase the number of places bearing the name of notable women and to teach younger generations about their important contribution to society and history, so as to give women the public recognition they deserve.
Commenting on the choice of the theme for this year’s prize, Caño Aguilar said: “Time goes by. Inequality of opportunity between men and women remains. In this day and age, it is unacceptable that women, who make up over half of the EU’s population, still suffer from discrimination and gender violence.”
Sa kabila ng pag-unlad na ginawa noong nakaraang mga dekada at ang katotohanan na ito ay isa sa mga pundasyon ng mga panuntunan ng EU, ang pagkakapantay-pantay sa kasarian ay pangarap pa rin sa EU, kasama ang mga kababaihan na patuloy na kumita ng mas kaunti kaysa sa mga kalalakihan. Ang puwang ng pensiyon ng kasarian ay nasa isang nakakapagod na 38%, na ginagawang kababaihan ang kahirapan sa katandaan. Ang mga kababaihan ay nananatiling isang maliit na minorya sa mga pampulitika na gumagawa ng desisyon at executive ng kumpanya, at account para lamang sa 31% ng mga negosyante.
Ang mga stereotype ng kasarian ay sumasalamin sa lahat ng mga spheres ng buhay at karahasan na nakabatay sa kasarian ay nananatiling laganap sa maraming anyo, mula sa karahasan sa tahanan hanggang sa sekswal na panliligalig at cyberbullying.
As a fervent advocate of gender equality, the EESC has repeatedly warned of persistent gender segregation and discrimination in European labour markets and society. Prompted by a recent backlash against women’s rights in some EU countries, earlier this year it called for a political commitment to achieving equality between women and men in Europe.
Sa pagsunod sa mga hangarin na ito, inilunsad ng EESC ang Civil Society Prize noong Hunyo upang i-highlight ang pag-unlad patungo sa isang mas pantay na lipunan para sa kababaihan at kalalakihan at upang hikayatin ang karagdagang aksyon.
The prize, now in its 11th year, is awarded to individuals and non-profit organisations for “excellence in civil society initiatives”.  A different theme is chosen each year, covering an important area of the EESC’s work. The prize money and the recognition received should help the winners to scale up their projects and provide further help in the community.
Sa 2018, ang premyo ay napunta sa mga inisyatibo na ipinagdiwang ang mga pagkakakilanlan, mga halaga at pamana sa kultura ng Europa. Kasama sa mga naunang tema ang pagiging makabagong negosyante na sumusuporta sa pagsasama ng merkado ng paggawa ng mga kapansanan na grupo, paglaban sa kahirapan, at pagkakaisa sa mga refugee at mga migrante.
