Precarious work from a gender and intersectionality perspective, and ways to combat it EN

30-11-2020 PE 662.491 FEMM
Studie
Zusammenfassung : This study, commissioned by the European Parliament’s Policy Department for Citizens’ Rights and Constitutional Affairs at the request of the FEMM Committee, explores the phenomenon of precarious work in the EU from a gender and intersectionality perspective. It finds that women, particularly young women, those with a migrant background and women with low levels of educational attainment, are especially vulnerable. This is a recurring trend across all of the Member States within the study’s scope. One of the key factors behind this is the disproportionate amount of time that women spend in caregiving roles and domestic work, something that is reinforced by COVID-19.

Access to Abortion Services for Women in the EU - Slovakia EN

23-10-2020 PE 659.922 FEMM
Eingehende Analyse
Zusammenfassung : This paper, commissioned by the European Parliament’s Policy Department for Citizens’ Rights and Constitutional Affairs at the request of the FEMM Committee, provides basic information on access to abortion services in Slovakia. The legal status of abortions in the country is under permanent pressure despite the legally binding decision by the Constitutional Court back in 2007 which safeguarded women´s right to free choice. Eleven proposals to restrict abortion have been presented in the National Parliament, in the last two years. Medical abortion is not available in the country, and together with conscientious objection applied in health services and current COVID-19 pandemics access to abortion services is further limited.

The gendered impact of the Covid-19 crisis and post-crisis period EN

30-09-2020 PE 658.227 FEMM
Studie
Zusammenfassung : Outbreaks affect men, women and other genders differentially. This can be both the direct infections with a pathogen, or the secondary effects of public health response policies. COVID-19 is no exception, and the gendered impacts thus far and in the future are numerous. This study outlines some of the key gendered effects thus far and suggestions for how these may extend into the post-crisis period based on currently available data on COVID and longer-term effects of previous outbreaks. This includes the lack of sex-disaggregated data, the role of healthcare workers and care workers, domestic violence, the impact of quarantine on feminised sectors of the economy, the additional unpaid labour on women as a result of lockdown, access to maternity, sexual and reproductive health services. This study commissioned by the European Parliament’s Policy Department for Citizens’ Rights and Constitutional Affairs at the request of the FEMM Committee.

Studie
Zusammenfassung : Diese Studie wurde von der Fachabteilung Bürgerrechte und konstitutionelle Angelegenheiten des Europäischen Parlaments auf Ersuchen des FEMM-Ausschusses in Auftrag gegeben und belegt, dass in den MINT-Bereichen (Mathematik, Informatik, Naturwissenschaften, Technik) und dem digitalen Sektor (z.

Dieses auf Ersuchen des FEMM-Ausschusses (Fachabteilung Bürgerrechte und konstitutionelle Angelegenheiten, Generaldirektion Interne Politikbereiche) ausgearbeitete Dokument soll eine aktualisierte Übersicht der Literatur zum aktuellen Stand von Bildung und Beschäftigung von Frauen in den MINT-Bereichen und dem digitalen Sektor bieten. Dabei werden die entsprechenden Laufbahnen von der Grundschulbildung bis zur Berufstätigkeit untersucht, um Hindernisse und Engpässe zu identifizieren, die Geschlechterparität verhindern. Abschließend werden Empfehlungen für Forschung, Initiativen und Politiken erteilt, mit denen die Mitwirkung von Frauen in diesen Bereichen verbessert werden könnte.

FEMM-DEVE ad hoc Delegation to Nairobi - 12-14 November 2019 EN

08-11-2019 PE 621.925 FEMM
Briefing
Zusammenfassung : This year marks the 25th anniversary of the International Conference on Population and Development (ICPD) in Cairo, where 179 governments adopted a landmark Programme of Action which set out to empower women and girls for their sake, and for the benefit of their families, communities and nations. It also marks the 50th anniversary of the founding of the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA). A At the ICPD, diverse views on human rights, population, sexual and reproductive health, gender equality and sustainable development merged into a global consensus that placed individual dignity and human rights, including the right to plan one’s family, at the heart of development. A quarter of a century later, some progress has been achieved. There has been a 25 per cent increase in global contraceptive prevalence rate around the world. Adolescent births have declined, and the global maternal mortality ratio has fallen. But progress has been slow and uneven. Hundreds of millions of women around the world are still not using modern contraceptives to prevent unwanted pregnancies, and global targets on reducing maternal deaths have not been met. For a more comprenhesive account of the progress made and the remaining challenges ahead, please consult the report Unfinished business - the pursuit of rights and choices for all.
