Empowering women in the EU and beyond: Education and reproductive health

02-03-2017

In the EU, gender equality in education and several other policy areas is protected by law. In practice, however, full gender equality has still not been achieved. Beyond the EU, the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) has found that millions of girls are still being denied an education. Therefore, the United Nations Entity for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women (UN Women) is calling for all countries to repeal discriminatory laws that create barriers ...

In the EU, gender equality in education and several other policy areas is protected by law. In practice, however, full gender equality has still not been achieved. Beyond the EU, the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) has found that millions of girls are still being denied an education. Therefore, the United Nations Entity for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women (UN Women) is calling for all countries to repeal discriminatory laws that create barriers for women and girls not only in education, but also in access to healthcare, decent jobs and equal pay. The right to sexual and reproductive health (SRH) is not only an integral part of the general right to health but is also fundamentally linked to the enjoyment of many other human rights, according to UN experts.

Empowering women in the EU and beyond: Economic and financial resources

02-03-2017

Ensuring that women have equal access to economic and financial resources and benefit equally from economic opportunities and growth has been recognised as a vital contribution towards gender equality, poverty eradication and sustainable development. This principle is embedded in numerous international instruments, including the current UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) which are binding on the EU and its Member States. The first report from a new United Nation (UN) high-level panel, created ...

Ensuring that women have equal access to economic and financial resources and benefit equally from economic opportunities and growth has been recognised as a vital contribution towards gender equality, poverty eradication and sustainable development. This principle is embedded in numerous international instruments, including the current UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) which are binding on the EU and its Member States. The first report from a new United Nation (UN) high-level panel, created to find concrete ways of implementing the SDGs related to women’s economic empowerment, has identified a number of interconnected areas where action is needed. One priority is to ensure that women have access to and control over finances and assets, both for their economic security and for building wealth. Other priorities include: securing decent jobs and equal pay and creating an enabling environment by investing in public services and infrastructure (including child and elderly care); changing business practices and discriminatory laws; and developing gender-sensitive (macro)economic and social policies. Women’s participation in economic decision-making through leadership and collective action is also vital to allow equal opportunities to shape economic structures. Measures must therefore address factors linked to women’s experiences and to the wider structural conditions that determine them, particularly the value given to women’s unpaid work.

The Gender Pension Gap: Differences between Mothers and Women without Children

This study was commissioned by the European Parliament's Policy Department for Citizens' Rights and Constitutional Affairs at the request of the FEMM Committee. Demographic trends and the financial and economic crisis have obliged European countries to accelerate the revision of their pension systems with the aim of ensuring their sustainability. However, serious question on the effects these reforms on pension adequacy have been raised. This report summarises recent changes in pension reforms and their effects on gender pension gaps, with a focus on women with children. The assessment of recent pension reforms in a gender perspective shows that changes in pension design may increase the gender gap in pensions and translate into higher poverty risks for older women compared to men, unless specific measures are implemented in Member States to support women’s position in the labour market and to address periods out of the labour market due to caring duties.

Empowerment of Roma Women within the European Framework of National Roma Inclusion Strategies

16-09-2013

This study focuses on the concept of empowerment of Romani women to analyse the existing living conditions of Romani women, interpret the national Roma inclusion strategy and to scrutinise good practices. The analysis shows that the present living conditions of Romani women in European Member States call for intervention. Romani women’s empowerment and gender mainstreaming approaches have to be fostered in National Roma Inclusion Strategies.

Country Report on Hungary. Empowerment of Romani Women within the European Framework of National Roma Inclusion Strategies

16-09-2013

This study focuses on the concept of empowerment of Romani women to analyse the existing living conditions of Romani women, interpret the national Roma inclusion strategy, and to scrutinise good practices. The analysis shows that the present living conditions of Romani women in Hungary call for intervention. The national Roma inclusion strategy may have positive impacts on women’s empowerment but its effectiveness is limited by an unfavourable institutional context.

Discrimination Generated by the Intersection of Gender and Disability

15-05-2013

Disabled women are at the intersection of various forms of discrimination on the grounds of gender and disability. This report provides an overview of relevant legislation and its limitations. It examines the ways this discrimination manifests itself in many domains of the private and public spheres. An intersectionality approach is seen as the most appropriate tool to analyse the complexity of this phenomenon and inform future policies and legislation, which will ensure participation and realisation ...

The current economic downturn and financial and budgetary crisis impacts the situation of women on the labour market and their living conditions. It is interesting to see the particularities of the situation of single women older women living alone and without dependants, relative to the rest of the population and to single and elderly men and women not living alone. Besides the usual labour market indicators, indicators on the quality of employment, sources of income and living conditions should be considered. The following analysis covers all the 27 EU Member States (according to data availability). It is also important to analyse the policy changes implied by the crisis: changes in pension systems, labour market and active ageing policies and assistance policies. In this document, the qualitative analysis of the main policy reforms introduced in recent years focuses on six countries selected as representative of European welfare systems: Germany, France, Italy, Sweden, United Kingdom, Romania. The main aspects of the policy reforms identified, their functioning in the frame of the more general national welfare systems and their expected impact in the gender perspective are described with special attention given to expected impacts on women living alone without dependants and elderly women living alone. In the selected countries some good practices can be identified to alleviate (directly or indirectly) the potential negative effects of welfare and labour market reforms on the conditions of women living alone and, especially, on older women living alone. These good practices are used as evidence to draw upon for policy recommendations.
