Poverty, gender and intersecting inequalities in the EU

15.06.2018 / Created by (EMWF)

Poverty in Europe today is more than just a lack of resources for survival. It also involves a loss of opportunities for meaningful participation in all areas of life, which can cause detachment and exclusion of such people from society. Due to existing gender inequalities in public and private life, women are continually at a higher risk of poverty across the EU. This report is part of EIGE’s mandate to monitor EU progress towards gender equality, specifically in relation to the objectives of the Beijing Platform for Action (BPfA).
