The European Commission adopted, on 1 March 2006, a Roadmap for Equality between Women and Men covering the period 2006-2010. This Roadmap paves the way for new actions in combination with existing successful ones. It reflects the Commission's commitment and determination to pursue its role. It is also a response to the requests of stakeholders at all levels - European institutions, Member States, social partners and civil society - to accelerate progress towards real equality.
