The European Parliament is a model – and a symbol – of cultural diversity. With its 766 Members, it is one of the world’s largest and most diverse international parliamentary bodies.
The European Parliament ensures that human rights are at the top of the European agenda. It takes initiatives in a range of areas such as preventing torture, the protection of minorities, conflict prevention, the protection of human rights activists, and the rights of indigenous people. By participating in election observation missions, the European Parliament makes a further contribution to strengthening democracy in third world countries.
Every year, the European Parliament runs a campaign on gender equality in order to raise awareness of its role in promoting this value. It is part of the yearly values campaign. The key moment of the campaign is 8 March, International Women’s Day. Every year around this date, various events are held by Parliament in Brussels and in the Member States via the Parliament’s Information Offices in order to inspire women and celebrate their achievements. Parliament’s Committee on Women’s Rights and Gender Equality (FEMM) chooses a specific theme each year.
