The FEMM Committee has invited all EP committees to hold for the first time European Gender Equality Week. 2020 marks the 25th anniversary of the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action. This important milestone provides an excellent opportunity to discuss the achievements and future challenges for the advancement of girls’ and women’s rights and gender equality.

In the framework of the European Gender Equality Week, the EMPL Committee has invited Blandine Mollard from the European Institute for Gender Equality (EIGE) to make a presentation on placing care at the heart of the EU's recovery efforts. It will take place on Wednesday morning, 28 October 2020, in room Antall 4Q2 and will be webstreamed.
