SUSTAINABLE AND ECONOMIC GROWTH

For us at the European Women’s Alliance, it’s simple. Gender equality is vital to the development of our society and sustained economic growth. Fundamentally, no society can develop socially, politically and economically when half of its population is marginalised. Investing in and empowering women, providing them with equal opportunities in all sectors, occupations and levels of responsibility, would mean a significant increase in GDP per capita and a general upturn in the European economy.

Gender equality in one domain has spill over effects in other domains.

The most vital areas for us at EWA are:

• Employment

• Migration

 Trade

 Public Procurement

 Climate change
