This day is dedicated to deepen the notion of sexism, which is still very rooted in our societies, and the link between these discriminatory beliefs and attitudes and the violence committed against girls and women.

Valence Borgia, in her capacity as a lawyer and co-founder of the Fondation des Femmes, participated as a moderator during the round table n°2 on: "What recourse against sexist and sexual violence?”
