Press release: The European Parliament supports women‘s organizations calling for the creation of an EU strategy for gender equality
On June 9th 2016 the European Parliament (EP) adopted a resolution calling on the European Commission to adopt an EU strategy focused on women’s rights and gender equality, a strategy with clear goals and monitoring mechanisms. The European Women’s Lobby (EWL), of which the Czech Women’s Lobby is a member, welcomes the EP’s appeal towards women’s organizations to participate in the creation and evaluation of this strategy and to draw financial support for their work in this regard. We equally welcome the attention given to different forms of discrimination women and girls in Europe face, as solving these issues requires a specific and consistent approach in order to ensure no girl or women is be left out.
