Between April and June 2019, EIGE collected information to complete the general version of the tool for the national parliaments of all 28 EU Member States and the European Parliament, based on publicly available data. Information was collected across five areas, each dedicated to measuring a specific aspect of gender sensitivity in parliaments. The main findings for each of these areas are presented in this factsheet.

These results show the strengths and weaknesses of parliaments in terms of their gender sensitivity and can serve as a benchmark to help track and analyse progress in enhancing gender equality in parliamentary work over time.
