Despite many successes in empowering women, numerous issues still exist in our social, cultural, political and economic life where women are not equally treated. Our general concerns are voiced namely over gender pay gap, women's economic independence, female poverty, women's underrepresentation in decision making, sexual and reproductive health and rights, trafficking and violence against women and girls. We want to bring a change and mainstream gender into all EU policies.
