Gender Equality Index 2017: Release in the Council of the EU
On 11 October 2017, EIGE releases its 3rd edition of the Gender Equality Index!
The event is livestreamed and serves as a forum for around 300 decision-makers and practitioners to discuss recent trends and seek solutions to gender inequalities in the current political and economic context.
The new features of the third edition include a more detailed analysis of the gender equality status for various groups of women and men. This ‘intersectional’ approach looks at factors beyond gender, such as age, disability and education.
What is more, it provides new data for social power and health behaviour, not measured in previous editions due to a lack of suitable indicators.
