3rd: THE FIELDS OF BOOZ;
4th: THE SORORITY FOUNDATION;
5th: A VOICE FOR THEM.
Who are these associations?
ARCE – FUTURE WOMEN
Support for the professional inclusion of women over 45 and the fight against “ageist” and sexist discrimination. Today, 1 million women over 45 are looking for a job in 2022.
While life expectancy is getting longer, the gaze cast on women over 45, both by society and the professional world, is pitiless. Added to this accumulation of sexist and ageist discrimination is an economic reality since, having become invisible on the job market, women expose themselves to a risk of precariousness in their second part of life.
Arce – Avenir Femmes denounces the systemic vulnerability of women from the age of 45 and offers appropriate support for returning to work in order to secure their second part of life.
Perla is committed to consolidating the care of women weakened by domestic violence and single mothers.
The association is based in Bordeaux, mobilizes for access to care and well-being for vulnerable women who need support to regain confidence and self-esteem; it is also addressed to single women who become and become to be mothers. It is also a collective of professional speakers within partner structures and during itinerant hotlines. It provides care for children in workshops, without having to pay a euro for women.
“A man should see a rare pearl in a woman, and in her smile a ray of sunshine, but today this support is lacking, because of sexism, which has killed women’s freedom.”
THE FIELDS OF BOOZ
The fields of Booz were created by two congregations “Notre Dame de Charité” and “Le Bon Pasteur”, to help single women, asylum seekers, in the process of regularization and integration.
It all started with a biblical story, taken from the Book of Ruth, where three characters are at the heart of this story:
– Noemi, an already old woman returns to Bethlehem, her country, after ten years of emigration to Moab;
– Ruth, her daughter-in-law who wanted to follow her, also arrives, a widow, childless and a foreigner;
– Booz, is a rich relative of Noémie, who, according to the law, has the right to marry Ruth to ensure a lineage and thus restore all their rights to these two women.
The inspiration of the Association is what happens in the field between Ruth who gleans and Booz who welcomes her, defends her from the racism and sexism of her harvesters, and integrates her into his staff.
Whether they left their country of origin for political or personal reasons (wars, revolutions, racism, religious discrimination, excision, forced marriage, sexual violence, sexual orientation, etc.), all degraded degrading and violent living conditions with physical and psychological consequences. Through the different forms of support and assistance it offers, the association wants to enable these women to regain their dignity and self-confidence and to facilitate their integration.
THE SORORITY FOUNDATION
It fights against domestic and intra-family violence, against harassment and more generally against all forms of violence faced by women and people from gender minorities.
The association also registers its action in the fight for gender equality, for safety, for respect and for the development of all.
The community can be tapped at any time for advice, contacts, expertise and support on a multitude of topics.
THE SORORITY APP
Let’s fight together against domestic violence, intra-family violence and against all forms of harassment.
In the street, at home, in the office, in transport, everywhere, you see in real time the people around you who are ready to act.
A VOICE FOR THEM
It offers a totally free moving and storage service for women fleeing a violent spouse.
Women must first be registered with a social structure, CCAS, emergency centres, MSD to be able to benefit from this aid.
When a structure calls on them, the association organizes the move in complete safety, in order to recover the personal effects of the beneficiary and divert them to a free storage service while it is being reconstructed within a center of accommodation. At the end, when the woman moves into a new home, a redevelopment service is also provided by the services. There is also a partnership agreement signed with an association that offers foster families for pets.
The 5 favorite associations each received an endowment of €10,000.
