The PES Women Annual Conference entitled ‘Feminism in the 21st Century’ is being held in Prague from 5th – 6th December. The Conference is focusing on the 21st century challenges to gender equality in Europe and formulating PES Women responses.
Zita Gurmai MEP, President of PES Women said: “The European Women’s Rights Charter must constitute an enhanced commitment to gender equality. This must be visible, effective, target-driven and have a sufficient budget to ensure that the content is implemented and respected in all Members States. Gender equality policies cannot be relegated to a sectoral approach. Our future depends on how we can make these gender policies work”.
“Gender equality and the participation of women is essential for a progressive European society”, concluded the newly re-elected PES Women President, Zita Gurmai MEP.
