Review of the Implementation of the Beijing Platform for Action in the EU Member States

The report focuses on the importance of gender equality in economic rights and independence, including access to employment, appropriate working conditions and control over economic resources.

Through an analytical focus on part-time work and self-employment, the report demonstrates their effect on the economic independence of women and men, as well as on gender equality more broadly. On the basis of this analysis, EIGE proposed a set of indicators and sub-indicators in the area of women and the economy that were endorsed by the Council in June 2014.

This publication is the sixth report in EIGE’s review of the implementation of the BPfA in the EU and was prepared to support the Greek Presidency of the Council of the European Union.
