Putting a gender spotlight on living and working in Europe

8 March is International Women’s Day. The day marks the wide-scale progress made towards achieving gender equality and combating gender-based injustice, but also serves as an important impetus to ensure the spotlight remains on continued work towards realising these goals across the globe. Eurofound has an important role to play in assisting in the development of better social, employment and work-related policies for all EU citizens and those that call Europe home. Evidence-based research is a fundamental stepping-stone on this path to gender equity.


In preparation for International Women’s Day we invite you to explore the issue of gender equality in depth, to read about the different areas in which gender equality is most urgently needed – because at Eurofound providing the knowledge needed to develop policies that ensure gender equality in life and work continues to be a top priority.
