Nos Espaces à Égalité

La place de la femme dans la société est souvent réduite à celui de la place de la femme en entreprise. Mais l’enjeu de l’égalité ne se joue-t’il pas, avant tout, dans l’espace public ?
En observant la situation uniquement par le prisme de l’entreprise, notre vision est déformée et contre–productive. In fine, elle fragilise cette notion-même d’égalité. Il faut réorienter notre œil et regarder tout autour de nous. L’espace public, est celui des politiques publiques, du pouvoir économique. Il est celui de la rue, de ses infrastructures, du pouvoir citoyen. Il est enfin celui de l’éducation, des médias, de la publicité et des territoires 2.0.
Alors, si on ouvre nos yeux bien grands, comment cet espace public est-il réparti ?
