The University of Alicante (UA) stands as a beacon of gender equality and women’s empowerment. The UA is deeply committed to gender diversity, actively promoting visibility and awareness on gender equality issues. This commitment is evident in the array of campaigns, events, exhibitions, and commemorations centered around women’s contributions and rights.

University of Alicante’s Commitment to Gender Equality

The University of Alicante is a pioneer in integrating gender studies and equality into its academic and social framework. It hosts the Instituto Universitario de Investigación de Estudios de Género (IUIEG), a dedicated research institute focusing on gender studies, aiming to provide an institutional response to the need for a space of reflection and action on gender within the university environment. Learn more about IUIEG and its initiatives here.

Additionally, the UA’s Unidad de Igualdad tackles issues such as gender-based violence and machismo, supports volunteer actions against gender violence, and promotes equality through education and research. This unit is a cornerstone in the university’s efforts to create a safe and inclusive environment for all genders. Discover the extensive resources and programs offered by the Unidad de Igualdad here.

The Vicerrectorado de Igualdad, Inclusión y Responsabilidad Social further underscores the university’s commitment to creating a diverse and inclusive academic community. This commitment is reflected in the university’s policies, educational programs, and community outreach initiatives aimed at fostering equality and social responsibility.

Highlighting Women’s Contributions through Art and History

The Museo de la Universidad de Alicante (MUA), located adjacent to our office, is a cultural gem that offers exhibitions like Mulier Mulieris and Pluri-Identitats. These exhibitions are dedicated to exploring and celebrating female identity, achievements, and the multifaceted nature of gender through contemporary art. The Mulier Mulieris exhibition, held annually, delves into the artistic representation of women’s legacy, identity transformation, and gender-related concepts. It aims to foster reflection, challenge perceptions, and reclaim memories. Learn more about this inspiring exhibition here.

The Pluri-Identitats biennial exhibition provides a platform for artists to present multidisciplinary works that question, challenge, and transcend traditional boundaries in the construction of ethnic-cultural, affective-sexual, and functional identities. This initiative reflects the university’s dedication to addressing and promoting diversity and inclusion through the arts. Further details can be found here.

Engaging with the Community and Beyond

The University of Alicante’s influence extends beyond campus boundaries, impacting national conversations on gender equality, as seen in the significant reach of campaigns like No More Matildas. This campaign, which has resonated deeply on the UA campus and across Spain, aims to highlight and address the underrepresentation of women in science and academia. Explore the campaign and its impactful message through these videos in Spanish and English.
