Question: Tell us about your opinion on the project “Women Get Back”
Janaina: The project is a way to see a reality of the women in the world, and also a way to help them with their professional plans.
Question: What did you learn during this Job Shadowing Experience?
Janaina: I learned that Italy have almost the same problems that we have in Brazil. The women have needs anywhere and the domestic violence is one of the consequences from the economy dependency regards their partners. I learned also that the italian women have assistence of the government during and after the pregnancy, but the foreign women that lives there, don’t. Day by day, we need to build the equality where is lacking
Question: How important is for you the role of the Women in the workplace?
Janaina: The women can be so intelligent, brave and competent as the men. We have the capacity to see beyond the lines and analyze the situations with the human vision, but this not means a maternal eyes. Our power to decide and to act helps us to be good leaders, if we want. The gender parity is very importante to equals oportunities, where the women and the men can receive the same, doing the same function.
Question: Did you enjoy this experience?
Janaina: Yes, a lot. Was incredible see this experience, with italian eyes, about the negative reflects, in lives of women that don’t have explored their professional competences, for any reason. This experience makes me analyze the extent of the women situation in society. Is not only about gender parity, is about independence, self power and, in a lot of cases, survivance (regarding the domestic violence).
