EIGE has developed a tool to help parliaments to assess their organisation and working procedures for gender sensitivity. It collects facts to determine the level of gender equality in a given parliament, thereby highlighting its strengths and weaknesses. This knowledge facilitates the identification of the changes necessary to improve gender equality in the parliament.
In national parliaments across the EU, women make up less than a third of parliamentarians. This is bound to have an impact on parliamentary decisions. One way to balance the decision-making power in Europe is to have more gender-sensitive parliaments.
Use EIGE’s Gender-sensitive Parliaments online tool to see how responsive your parliament is to the different needs of women and men. Find out what changes are needed to make your parliament more gender-sensitive.
