“Great changes start with individuals"

An award like AWDA helps promoting a change.?In an ideal world, there would be no need for gender-awards;
but since this is not the case, it’s necessary to create safe places,
safe places, even awards.
It happens to think that we, as the little people that we are,
cannot change anything about reality. Instead, changes,
especially the socio-cultural ones, start from individuals themselves.

Vera Gheno, sociolinguist and researcher (University of Florence)

I think it is very important to create opportunities to come in contact
with women's work, build networks, where we support and promote each other.
And it’s never enough, perhaps because of a strange competition between women,
which is one of patriarchy great mistakes, the result of a conservative society.
The AWDA project is extraordinary because it is about women
who are promoting other women's work.

Maria Luisa Frisa, critic and director of Fashion Design and Multimedia Arts course at IUAV University of Venice

"Rewards are good accelerators."

Rewards such as female quotas are essential tools, because
in a process so slow to take place - such as the gender equality in work field - we can introduce elements of
acceleration and make it faster: if we agree on the purpose
and trust the process, then let's try to speed it up. Awards are good
accelerators as well as quotas: they are a starting point,
by many considered almost arbitrary by many, but they allow
the violation of the stereotype.

Marcella Corsi, economist and lecturer (Sapienza di Roma)

From this edition, the award will be enriched with a new special
mention: AWDA for RIGHTS! dedicated to the project that will
have better represented the social issues of women's rights and labor
and more generally gender inequality in any field.
