Belgium - EWL members launch ’AUWCH (Ouch!) Award’ for sexist talk or behaviour and compete for advertising space

[Brussels, 22 August 2011] The Nederlandstalige Vrouwenraad, EWL member organisation in Belgium, has launched a ’painful prize for sexist talk or behaviour’: the AUWCH (Ouch!) Award.

The AUWCH Award rewards persons or organisations which ‘brace the glass ceiling, reject quota laws, keep women’s salaries low and inequality high’. We invite anyone who has experienced or seen discriminations or sexisms to nominate the responsible actor for the AUWCH Award through the dedicated website: www.auwchaward.be

An online voting on the nominees will take place in December; the winner will receive the AUWCH Award in January.

Help the Vrouwenraad win free advertising space for this award!

The award was launched with the publication of an advertisement in the major Dutch language Belgian newspaper, De Standaard, on 01 August as one of the 24 advertisements of NGO’s selected by the newspaper’s jury. These 24 NGOs are now competing for further free advertisement space in this newspaper.

To help raise-awareness about this issue and award, please go to the following link before 26 August and vote for Nederlandstalige Vrouwenraad:

You can vote by copying the letters and ciphers in the box on the right side of our advertisement into the box just below and then enter your vote by ticking the box ‘stem op deze foto’.
