Honouring the fight against sexism

The Anne Beffort 2018 Award was presented to the Voix de Jeunes Femmes (“Voice of Young Women”) association, which aims to engage young people in the fight against sexism and denounce the inequalities they face. The City of Luxembourg was keen to acknowledge the association’s commitment to promoting the equal opportunities, rights and treatments of women and men. The €3,000 prize has been awarded annually since 2003 by the College of Aldermen on the initiative of the advisory commission for equal opportunities between women and men.
