'Equal Pay, it's about Time!'

capture_decran_2013-05-07_a_12.18.42_(1).png

The PES Women campaign ‘Equal Pay, it’s about time!’ was launched on 22 June in Sofia, during the 2013 PES Women annual meeting. The campaign raises awareness about the 16.2% gender pay gap that exists at European level and puts forward specific demands to close this gap, in advance of the 2014 European Elections. 

In this context, PES Women calls for:

  • a common target to be established in order to reduce the Gender Pay Gap by 2% per year and per Member State for all age groups – monitored by audits at European level
  • clear and dissuasive sanctions in the European legislation in case of non-fulfilment of the objectives
  • a European Commissioner for Gender Equality and Women’s Rights to be fully engaged on this issue as of 2014.
