Equality of women and men in local life

Gender equality - 17.06.2016

EU Council conclusions in line with CEMR’s call to adopt a post-2015 EU strategy on equality
First the European Parliament and now the Council. The Council of Ministers’ decision to press for the adoption of an EU strategy on gender equality is good news as it is in line with what CEMR advocates. It is now up to the European Commission to ensure that gender equality becomes a reality by considering adopting a Communication that reaffirms its commitment to the promotion of gender equality in all EU policy areas.

This is CEMR’s message following the Council meeting*, held on 16 June, where a package of conclusions was adopted in response to the Commission's strategic engagement for gender equality. CEMR will continue to lobby the Commission to make sure that its proposals to address gender inequalities have the formal status they merit.
