Women and diversity: challenges for conviviality
Tuesday 02 June 2015, 05:00pm

Multiple issues of great social and legal relevance arise when the concepts of woman and diversity are brought together. In the closing speech of the 2014-2015 course on Intercultural mediation and diversity management in the Valencian Community, Ángeles Solanes, professor of Legal Philosophy at Valencia University, analysed the different rights, interests and values involved in this relationship and that, when opposed to each other, can be perceived as incompatible. In particular, she argued that when (gender) equality or values such as human dignity seem to collide unavoidably with other rights such as religious freedom or the right to privacy, it is essential to weigh the competing claims and resolve disagreements in order to ensure effective individual and collective protection. For this reason, it is fundamental to determine whether there really is a conflict, for instance, in highly publicised cases such as the use of the full veil, or whether we are faced with a problem about the limits on rights, which do not require a punitive approach.
