As chair of the FEMM Committee I wish to extend a warm welcome to all visitors to this official website. Women’s rights and gender equality are the core issues of our Committee and we hope that our improved web presence can give the EU citizens and everyone who is interested in our mission, a better picture of our work and bring us closer to each other.
We will use this channel to further promote the Committee’s mandate and achievements through information and transparency to our audience. Despite many successes in empowering women, numerous issues still exist in all areas of life (social, cultural, political and economical) where women are not equally treated. Our general concerns are voiced over the pay gap, female poverty, women's underrepresentation in decision making, trafficking and violence against women and children. We want to change this and we need the help of civil society and all organizations who contribute to the fight for equal rights.
 
This site is a vast source of information on what we do and we hope that you find it user-friendly. We are at your disposal for your input about the site and also the content of our work. We invite you to periodically visit this website where you will find updates and the latest news from our Committee.
