Building a gender just society, a common European agenda for gender equality

19.07.2018 / Created by (EMWF)

Inequality is a reality in Europe and even rising, especially for women. This is a structural trend driven, among other factors, by our economic system. As the index of the European Institute for Gender Equality shows, we are only halfway to achieving gender equality in Europe. Gender gaps still persist. To foster a debate on these issues, the Friedrich-EbertStiftung (FES) EU Office organized an international conference in Brussels entitled “Building a gender just society – A common European agenda for gender equality“in November 2014. The conference continued a dialogue on feminist economics between academics, civil society and politicians, established at a previous FES conference in Athens in 2013. With these annual experts meetings the FES wants to contribute to a continuous exchange on how to achieve more equitable, inclusive and sustainable societies. Experts from Europe and the US developed visions and recommendations to make our societies more gender just.
