Gender Equality Index

The fight to deplete gender disparities throughout Europe is not over

Women should be treated not only equally but also with equity. And we have a long way to go to fully achieve this throughout Europe.
Based on the European Institute for Gender Equality, some countries like Sweden and Denmark do pretty well in addressing gender differences but others like Greece and Hungary need to do more. However, despite overall scores getting better, even in Scandinavian “paradise” societies, women with children lag behind men income-wise. Iceland is on track, but how about the rest of Europe and the world? Societies should intervene to provide the appropriate support. We have to make a choice between selfishness and helping the people who are in more need than ourselves.
At DiEM25, recognizing the gender gap, we implement a strict 50-50 male-female representation and not only within the Coordinating Collective. In our events we strive for equal representation. We need to hear women’s voices and not only encourage them to decide for themselves but also help them succeed in the pursuit of their own interests!
