International Women's Rights Day
Portraits of the project actors:
Sara Ruiz Moradillo, Wind Energy Engineer
Every year, 8 March celebrates International Women's Rights Day. In this context,
Ailes Marines wanted to highlight the women who operate
every day to help the project move forward.
Zoom in on their careers, their missions and their daily motivations.
What is your background?
I was a structural engineer in charge of the design and construction of infrastructure projects(bridges, tunnels, etc...) for onshore wind farms and I finally decided to jump into the world of offshore wind.
How long have you been working on the project?
I have beenworking on the project for 8 months.
What is your role?
My main task is to control the design of the wind turbines and to combine it with the different installations(transition pieces, submarine cables) and with the future elements that will be included, such as the bird detection system, maintenance system...
This design represents the culmination of what will be manufactured and installed in the next stage.
What do you enjoy most about your job?
I particularly enjoy working on something abstract at the beginning, on paper, and having the opportunity and pleasure to see it being built. It's a real satisfaction.
If you had to describe your mission in 3 words?
To illustrate my activity, I would use the words Design, Communication and Minutia.
Why did you enter the
sector of Marine Renewable Energy?
I find the Marine Renewable Energy sector an extremely interesting field. Indeed, it offers us many opportunities on a daily basis. Moreover, I would say that it is a real satisfaction to work with the aim of building a better world.
Women's rights: the fight against inequality
The fight against inequality is a real challenge for society and one that continues to be fought.
For over 40 years, the United Nations has placed this cause at the heart of its sustainable development goals, stating that " Gender equality is not only a fundamental human right, it is also a necessary foundation for a peaceful, prosperous and sustainable world".
In order to be aware of the key figures surrounding this issue, a review is carried out each year to monitor progress in this fight, as well as the challenges that remain, on a global scale.
As a reminder
Notable advances in recent decades include
- More girls in school
- Fewer girls forced into early marriage
- More women in leadership positions and in parliament
- Laws and reforms to advance gender equality
Despite these advances, many challenges remain:
- Persistent discriminatory laws and social norms
- The under-representation of women at all levels of political power
- The rate of women who have experienced physical or sexual violence
Together, let's continue to fight against inequalities.
