Report on equality between women and men 2010
At the request of the European Council, the European Commission reports each year on progress towards gender equality and presents challenges and priorities for the future. This publication gives an overview of recent developments as regards the situation of women and men in the EU with relevant data and policy presentations. The 2010 report addresses more particularly the shorter-term and longer-term challenges for gender equality in the context of the economic crisis. It also focuses on challenges relating to work/life balance, poverty and social inclusion and violence against women.
