On 16 July, FEMM voted on the report on Gender Equality in EU's foreign and security policy. The report points out that achieving gender equality requires the full awareness and unwavering commitment by the EU and its Member States. The report goes into all the different aspects of the theme, namely by describing why and how women and girls are particularly affected by violence, poverty, armed conflicts and the impact of climate change but also by analysing gender equality and equal opportunities in the EU and Member States institutions and bodies with regard to foreign and security policy. 265 amendments were tabled. The vote on the amendments took place on 13 July.
