The Association

For #JamaisSansElles: feminism is humanism! 

#JamaisSansElles is a feminist and humanist movement that promotes equality and gender diversity. It was founded by women and men; entrepreneurs and key figures from the digital sector (three women and twenty men initially). #JamaisSansElles works to support gender equality in all areas of society. The presidency is shared by women and men. 

The #JamaisSansElles appeal gave birth to the eponymous association, which was founded in 2016.

Through their commitment to #JamaisSansElles, men, who are mindful of balance and representivity, promise to participate no longer in events, debates, expert panels or round table discussions without women. The movement was created by the Gentlemen’s Club,  a group of humanist entrepreneurs joined by a large number of signatories from civil society and the media, academics, politicians, etc. It has a Women’s Council and is supported by Club GirlPower 3.0.

Today, in order to break through the glass ceiling #JamaisSansElles proposes concrete actions to promote the equal participation and visibility of women in decision-making bodies and positions of responsibility and representation. The association promotes shared governance.

The association develops charters in partnership with firms and governance actors and devotes time and effort in the battle against gender stereotypes in the field of education.

800 male and female leaders have commited themselves individually to #JamaisSansElles: politicians, MPs, senators, male and female French ambassadors worldwide, NGOs and big firms ( Microsoft France, SAP France, BNP-Paribas, Société Générale, EDF, Sanofi and Les Collectionneurs). In Europe and elsewhere in the world: German ministers, Danish MPs and subsidiaries of major French corporations. The signatories are present in approximately 50 countries.

Three French ministries and their administrations have committed themselves with an ambitious #JamaisSansElles charter: Ministry of National Education, Ministry of the Economy and Finance, Ministry of the Interior.
The commitments made by the signatories and partners of the association have changed the daily lives of thousands of women and men. The #JamaisSansElles firms represent already more than 600 000 collaborators worldwide, a number which continues to grow.
#JamaisSansElles has been, since 2018, the head of the French delegation of Women 2.0, a G20 engagement group.

#JamaisSansElles, a popular hashtag

The association was founded as a result of the simultaneous success of the first appeal, launched in 2016, and of the eponymous hashtag that became very popular on Twitter within a matter of days. It is shared widely on social media (620 000 engagements of which more than 300 000 mentions since 2016 according to Talkwalker). Since 2015 #JamaisSansElles has been the 4th most prominent hashtag of a collective movement on Twitter in France (source – Ifop Opinion/FlashTweet).
