Our Committee is aware of the challenges women face despite many successes in empowering women. Our general concerns are voiced over the financially inequality, namely the gender pay gap, the backlash of women including LGBTIQ rights, the women’s underrepresentation in decision making, the violence against women, and our sexual and reproductive health rights. We want to go beyond mainstreaming gender into all EU policies. We want to make gender equality a priority in the EU because gender equality means better legislation. In order to do this, we need the help of civil society and all organizations who contribute to the engagement for equal rights for all.
We invite you to visit us to find updates and the latest news from our Committee, both here and on Social Media. Join us to work for a Europe that offers equal opportunities for everyone, join us to continue the fight for equality.
