The Gender Equality Index is a composite indicator that measures the complex concept of gender equality and, based on the EU policy framework, assists in monitoring progress of gender equality across the EU over time.

The release conference on 11 October in Brussels brought together around 300 decision-makers and practitioners to discuss the findings of the Gender Equality Index 2017. The presentations looked at recent trends and sought solutions to gender inequalities in the current political and economic context.
