In this second volume of the FEPS Primers Series, Agnès Hubert gives a detailed progressive overview of the history of gender equality in the EU, feminist policies, key actors, institutions, the cooperation of women’s networks and organisations, the efforts, obstacles and occasional setbacks on the way to a more equal EU. It highlights the main milestones along the way, from equal pay to protection against gender-based violence, from the first legislative measures to the impact of the covid-19 pandemic on gender equality.
“The author takes us on a journey through the efforts and obstacles to keep women at the centre of European policymaking as she assesses key milestones along the way, from equal pay to protection against domestic violence, from the first legislative measures to the impacts of the pandemic.” Robert Biedroń (Member of the European Parliament, Chair of FEMM Committee at the European Parliament)
“An essential and valuable tool for anyone striving for a more gender equal society, with clear guidelines on how to create a feminist Europe for all.” Zita Gurmai (President of PES Women and FEPS Vice President)
“It is a must-read for whoever wants to learn about the evolution, progress and hurdles in the fight for equality between women and men at the EU level.” Reka Safrany (European Women’s Lobby President)
“Having participated directly in this transformational process, Agnès Hubert offers a detailed review of the key actors, institutions, inputs, outputs, victories and occasional setbacks that made it possible.” Joyce Mushaben (Adjunct Professor at BMW Center for German and European Studies, CGES)
