Who are we?

The Foundation Board

Geneviève BORDRY (she)

My commitment to the Foundation for Gender Equality is an obvious extension of the battles I have waged throughout my life, notably with F-information and Réseau femmes*. Equality, women’s rights and social justice are values that have always driven me to develop innovative projects.

As coordinator, I am committed to representing the interests of the member associations of Réseau femmes*.

It’s important for me to defend the values that drive me. Being involved with the Foundation means fighting for equality and justice, and helping to change attitudes and policies in favour of a more inclusive and equitable society.
