MEPs call for new gender equality strategy

The European Commission must table a communication on a new strategy for gender equality and women’s rights 2016-2020 as soon as possible and deliver on its political commitments, say MEPs in a resolution voted on Wednesday. The communication should address gender equality issues, including the gender pay gap.


MEPs say that the previous Commission strategy (2010-2015) was not comprehensive enough to boost gender equality at European and international levels and that a new strategy should provide new impetus and deliver concrete action to strengthen women’s rights and promote gender equality.
