On the occasion of International Women’s Day, this podcast takes a closer look at the recent policy developments on the EU gender equality agenda. Taking stock of the persisting barriers to gender equality and women’s rights, Laeticia Thissen – FEPS Policy Analyst on Gender Equality – engages in conversation with Swedish MEPs Evin Incir. Whilst identifying the remarkable set of landmark breakthroughs on major EU policies for gender equality, the discussion also reveals that the road towards a genuine “Union of Equality” is still a rocky one. Amongst the current issues addressed, the podcast touches upon internal policy developments, such as the Commission’s proposal for a directive on combatting violence against women and domestic violence. It also applies a feminist lens to external affairs, such as the situation of women in Iran.
