Financial fitness for women
Friday, March 5, 5:30 PM – 7:30 PM, digitally zoomed in / out Although women are better educated than ever, it is not easy for the majority of the female population to maintain their economic independence.

In a virtual lecture, Birgit Abel will lecture on the economic position of women: Do women deal with money differently? What are the financial implications of part-time work and a choppy employment history? How do you recognize strong financial advice? How do you develop a personal financial strategy?

International Day of Prayer
Friday, March 5th, the places and times of the day can be found in the daily newspapers. Women of all denominations invite you to pray on International Day of Prayer: Vanuatu “What are we building on?” This year, the International Day of Prayer comes from the paradise of the southern seas in Vanuatu. Blue sea with exotic fish, coral reefs, dream beaches, tropical rainforests with an abundance of fruits. Vanuatu’s 83 islands lie somewhere between Australia, New Zealand and the Fiji Islands in the Pacific Ocean. Nevertheless, Vanuatu ranks first in the Global Risks Report. No country in the world is more at risk of natural disasters like earthquakes, eddy currents and volcanic eruptions than this small country. Added to this is sea level rise due to climate change. What are we building on? What sustains our lives when everything vibrates? This is what women in service ask.

Women in art
Sunday, March 7th, International Women’s Day, video at www.museumgeorgschaefer.de Goethe’s metaphor of the “immortal female” developed into an integral part of European art and culture after being met with enthusiasm in France.
