European Gender Equality Week

During the last week of October 2023, the European Parliament holds its fourth European Gender Equality Week.

Following the success of the first three editions organised in October 2020, 2021 and 2022, the European Parliament continues this important initiative to highlight its continues efforts to place women at the centre of legislation.

Since the last edition of the European Gender Equality Week, important legislation was adopted: Women on boardsEqual pay, as well as the EU accession to the Istanbul Convention.

There is progress in this policy field, but much remains to be done. Therefore, the topic of focus this year is “Gender Equality: What’s next?”. The Parliament and its partners will be looking at what we have achieved so far and what still needs to be done.

All parliamentary committees and delegations, as well as many important partners of the Parliament are invited to hold events addressing gender equality issues in their areas of competence.

Join us – and our partners – in raising gender equality visibility by using the EP hashtag #EPGenderEqualityWeek. In 2022, the initiative had a reach of around 2.5 million citizens, spreading the importance of this topic and creating awareness around it. This year, with the upcoming 2024 European elections, we aim to reach an even wider audience.


See the draft programme which is updated regularly with new events and which contains a list of various events taking place in the Parliament and in other EU Institutions, Bodies, Agencies or other partners.
