What is the EU doing for gender equality and is it enough?

The Corona crisis has highlighted the gender inequality, while at the same time the current generation is growing up with the name “Generation Equal.” A contradiction, because many grievances existed before the pandemic, such as unequal pay for the same work and disadvantages in the labor market due to family situation. “Equality for all and equality in all its senses” is one of the guidelines of Ursula von der Leyen. Fittingly, the European Commission has set up a Gender Equality Strategy 2020-2025, which addresses the current gaps. As the second program of its kind, it will have to address various challenges, the rising number of femicides and growing economic inequality. What measures are being taken by the EU institutions and are they enough to achieve the gender equality already established in the 1957 Rome Treaties? Let’s talk about it with Maria Noichl, MEP S&D.
