Gender Equality Index 2017: Measuring gender equality in the European Union 2005-2015

15.01.2018 / Created by (EMWF)

This report documents the third edition of the Gender Equality Index of the European Institute for Gender Equality (EIGE). The third edition provides scores for 2005, 2010, 2012 and 2015. It relies on a conceptual framework that embraces different theoretical approaches to gender equality and integrates key gender equality issues within the EU policy framework.

The Index measures gender gaps and takes into account the context and different levels of achievement of Member States within a range of relevant policy areas: work, money, knowledge, time, power and health. Additionally, it gives insights into violence against women and intersecting inequalities. It shows the different outcomes of EU and national policies for women and men and supports the development and implementation of evidence-based policymaking in the area of gender equality.
