Later on in the evening, it was organized a gala dinner in a warm and intimate atmosphere at Warwick Geneva where we shared memories, good humor brought us closer together and the youngest member, Coraline Parmentier played two piano interludes by women  composers (Cécile Chaminade, Guitarre op.32 and Waed Bouhassoun, Je lui donne).


The guided tour planned for the next day transformed into a small round table because of the rainy weather. Brigitte Mantilleri gave a presentation of places where influencial women lived in Geneva, mapping their cultural impact through the Genevan society, followed by a short presentation of Anne Nègre’s book “History of Inequality(Ed. The Silk Road).

The association promotes women’s education, thus aligning itself with the UN’s MDGs 4, 5 and 17 (among the 17 Sustainable Development Goals by 2030).
The AGFDU belongs to the national network of the Swiss Association of University Women, member of University Women of Europe and Graduate Women International
