BPW Europe Manifesto

“More Gender Equality, Rights and Opportunities in the future of Europe”

Call of Business Professional Women (BPW) Europe to the candidates for the 2019 European Elections

We want to ensure that all Women in Europe reach equal rights and opportunities in business and all professions.

Women represent half of the population but are not yet proportionally represented in Equal Pay for Equal Work, Boards, Decision-making and leadership in Europe.

The 2017 EIGE Gender Equality Index[1] shows over 10 years’ snail’s pace progress in reducing the inequality gap between women and men across the 28 EU Member States. This is also illustrated in the European Commission 2018 Report on equality between women and men in the EU[2] and Fact Sheets of the European Union[3]. Responding to these challenges requires a collective approach between decision-makers, politicians, civil society and businesses.

BPW Europe supports EWL 50/50 Campaign for the European Election.

What we want?       





Who we are?
