  4. 4. Mother influence…views picked in Internet « Mothers influence by example » « Children look up to their mothers and often imitate their behavior. It is of paramount importance for mothers to set a positive example for their children. The hypocritical old saying, "do as I say, not as I do" will not work. Children often repeat whatever behavior they observe, regardless of what they are told. » « Nurturing and love at home are key » « Like sunshine and water are necessary for plants, children need to be loved and nurtured. Above all else, provide a home that is full of love and safety for your children. Through this, they will not only gain a strong foundation of love, but will also be more willing to accept what you are teaching them. » Influence society only through children? OK but current & concrete issues need current actions 4

  7. 7. Make Mothers Matter Make Mothers Matter (MMM) is an international non-political, non-denominational NGO founded in 1947 at UNESCO. Its mission is to promote and support the essential role of mothers in the social, economic and cultural development of societies. MMM argues that supportive and informed mothers are key partners who need to be consulted and actively involved in the development of projects and goals, including those that concern them. In spite of the diversity of their situations, their living conditions and cultures, mothers all over the world have much in common, in particular the concern for a better world for their children. MMM emphasizes the universality and importance of the economic, social and cultural role of mothers based on their skills and responsibility as first educators of their children. Her advocacy work is centered on three areas of work that are particularly relevant to mothers: Mothers and economy, Mothers and Health Mothers for Peace. MMM intervenes at different levels: International at the United Nations, the European Union and UNESCO 7 « Improve humanity progress »

  9. 9. # ECONOMY We are is concerned about the often feminization of poverty, the reconciliation of family and work life, and the discrimination faced by mothers in economic life. In developing countries, where infrastructure and public services are often lacking, these problems are exacerbated and mothers struggle to ensure a minimum of financial independence. 9
  10. 10. # ECONOMY World Bank Report: Some figures on legal obstacles to the economic empowerment of women The 2016 World Bank report "Women, Business and the Law" shows that 90% of the 173 countries whose legislation has been examined have at least one law that discriminates women (examples): - Only 18 countries have no laws that disadvantage women - In 35 countries women who survive their spouses do not have the same inheritance rights as men, so not the same rights of access to property. - In 18 countries, women must obtain the authorization of their spouses to work. - Taxation in 16 countries directly favors men - Only 9 countries have enacted laws requiring at least one woman to sit on the board of a listed company 10
  11. 11. # ECONOMY Focus: Work and personal life balance 1/2 « The motherhood penalty » Women and men participation in the labour market and therefore accessibility to economic resources is unequal in Europe for structural and social reasons. One main reason for that is motherhood. In addition to the support of their children and young adults, more and more people - usually women - also have to take care of their own parents or ensure a presence with the grandchildren. Nursery/creche workplace adaptation Recognition • Increase of creche places • Promoting alternatives •Flexible hours • Maternity leave preparation •Mother role •Leadership skills 11
  12. 12. The objective is to eliminate discriminatory practices by employers against women, pregnant, on maternity leave or re-entering the labour market. It is far from being achieved and it requires a change of outlook on maternity specifically and on parental work in general. A change of outlook from employers, but also from the parents themselves and from all of us. By caring for and educating their children, mothers are irreplaceable and most of the time it is in the best interest of the child’s development. In doing so they are contributing to society. # ECONOMY Focus: Work and personal life balance 2/2 12
  13. 13. #2 HEALTH Maternal and child health remains a major challenge for global health, beginning with the tragedy of maternal mortality and morbidity, which is preventable in 99% of cases. MMM also denounces obstetric violence, attacks on the dignity of mothers during perinatal care, as well as stress and fatigue caused by poor reconciliation of family and work life and unequally distributed family and domestic responsibilities , 13
  14. 14. #2 HEALTH Our health concerns, as mothers Common diseases Medical research gender gap Mothers • Pregnancy • Childbirth • « Mental charge » 14
  15. 15. #2 HEALTH Obstetric violence «  I was told not to push for 30 minutes because it was shift change » « The doctor screamed at me and told me I wasn’t “allowed” to have my baby yet » “Just get the epidural, stop trying to be a hero.” - Guilty talks - Imposed episiotomies - Lack of pain management - Lack of information and consent - Abusive triggering - … 15
  16. 16. #2 HEALTH Exhausted women syndrome… Exhausted to think about « everything » « Management, organization and planning work that is both intangible, unavoidable and constant, and whose objectives are to satisfy everyone's needs and the right walk from the residence. » Nicole Brais of the Université Laval de Québec According to INSEE, in 2010 women accounted for 64% of domestic tasks and 71% of parenting tasks within households. In 1985, these rates were respectively 69% and 80%. 16
  17. 17. the idea behind those scenes is that women, even if contribute at the same level (or even higher sometimes) in terms of work time as men, are still responsible for the domestic tasks, and the global family organisation: holidays booking, medical appointment, passeport renewing etc… 17 #2 HEALTH Exhausted women syndrome…
  18. 18. #3 PEACE "If nonviolence is the law of humanity, the future belongs to women. Who can appeal to the hearts of men more effectively than women? » Gandhi The educational role of parents, especially the mother, is crucial. It is indeed within the family that the emotional balance is constructed, and that the values on which an individual is built are transmitted. It is also in the family that a child experiences his or her first experiences of security or distress, his or her early learning of community life, and the peaceful or violent management of conflicts. Mothers must realize that they are an important force to counter the multiple influences that undermine society. And the authorities must recognize them as such. 18
  19. 19. Mothers: the next generation of feminists? « The way a society treats mothers is an indicator of the way women are treated » We militate not only for mothers but for women in general. We are convinced that women values what we call feminine values are a response to current society problems. As a consequence, a mother cannot suffer, she should not suffer anymore that humanity is relayed to the second level, behind economical interests for instance. A balance should be found between all the interests of our society and this balance could not be achieved without the contributions of the first concerned, The mothers. 19
