Commission Staff Working Document - Strategic engagement for gender equality 2016-2019

European Commission, December 2015, 40 pages

 The document describes how gender equality actions will be focused on five priority areas, namely:

 

  • Increasing female labour market participation  and equal economic independence;
  • Reducing the gender pay, earnings and pension gaps and thus fighting poverty among women;
  • Promoting equality between women and men in decision-making;
  • Combating gender based-violence, including trafficking in human beings and protecting and supporting victims;
  • Promoting gender equality and women's rights across the world.

 

In addition, it emphasises the need to integrate a gender equality perspective into all EU policies as well as into EU funding programmes.
