Lecture by Delphine Martinot, Professor of Social Psychology (University of Clermont-Auvergne, Laboratory of Social and Cognitive Psychology, UMR CNRS, 6024)
The better school success of girls: a trompe-l'oeil effect

Conference on the occasion of the International Women's Rights Day on March 8, 2021
Girls do better at school than boys, from primary school to higher education. This observation dates back more than thirty years and has even led to the idea that schools favour girls.How then can we explain the fact that women continue to be under-represented in the fields of study considered to be the most prestigious and leading to careers in education?and leading to the most lucrative careers?

During this event, a survey was conducted among the participants. During this event, a survey was carried out among the participants: 95 people took part in the zoom and 84 in the survey; 85% women and 15% men; 50% AMU staff members, 42% students (8% other activity). Of the 84 participants, 51% were aware of AMU's anti-harassment, anti-sexist and anti-homophobic violence scheme before the round table.

Before and after defining sexual harassment and other forms of violence, the participants were asked if they had been victims or witnesses. Before the terms were defined, 39% thought they had been a victim or witness and 61% said they had not. After definition, 67% of people said they had been victims or witnesses of such acts. Of those who responded, 55% thought they had a clear definition of harassment and 88% felt that the definitions given matched what they thought.

During this event, the head of the regional branch of the Human Rights Defender was present. 92% of those who took part in the survey would be interested in setting up a Human Rights Defender's office at AMU and 86% wanted to be able to contact the Human Rights Defender in the event of a situation of discrimination (victim or witness). Following this meeting, 92% would be interested in holding another round table to discuss the subject further.

These figures highlight the importance of these mechanisms for informing and raising the awareness of AMU staff and students about the concepts of sexual harassment and violence.

 

Racism, Racisms?

The conference "Racism, Racisms?"was organised by AMU on 22 March 2021. This conference was given by Patrick Simon, socio-demographer, Director of Research at the National Institute for Demographic Studies (INED) in the International Migration and Minorities research unit and associate researcher at the Sociological Observatory of Change at Sciences Po.

In this conference, Patrick Simon puts into perspective the evolution of racism and discrimination, our knowledge of their mechanisms, the policies to respond to them and the issues at stake.
