With EIGE’s new platform, there are no more excuses to ignore gender concerns. We show you how to mainstream gender, tailor-made for your field. “EIGE’s Gender Mainstreaming Platform presents the different challenges for gender equality in 19 policy areas and introduces practical ways to address them”, explains Barbara Limanowska, Senior Gender Mainstreaming Officer at EIGE.
What does gender mainstreaming have to do with…Sport? Agriculture? Energy? Transport? Gender gaps and inequalities between women and men exist across all areas of society and impact on our daily lives – in classrooms, on the sports field and on public transport. This leaflet provides a basic introduction to what gender mainstreaming is and how it works. It also contains information on the different resources you can find on EIGE’s online platform to help include a gender perspective into all stages of the policy cycle, including policy area guides, good practices, methods and tools and country specific information.

Written by Shila Meyer-BehjatMany acknowledge the brunt women bear when it comes to the effects of global warming. However, less focus is still given to their capacity to be drivers of change in the fight against climate change. A new report by the European Institute for Gender Equality (EIGE) highlights just how little women have been involved: On average, they hold just about one fourth of decision-making positions related to climate change in the public sector.
Shila Meyer-Behjat and climate expert AnnikaCarlsson-Kanyama talk about the female face of climate change, why women drive smaller cars and the way to solve the climate crisis Ms Carlsson-Kanyama, can women solve the climate crisis?Oh, I would like to say yes, but I as a scientist I must say ‘I don’t know’ because this of course hasn’t been proven. But we know that women today are not empowered enough and we have evidence that they are more concerned with climate change than men.
Research conducted by the European Institute for Gender Equality (EIGE) shows that more women are needed in climate change decision making to respond to climate change efficiently. EIGE’s report introduces the first EU indicators in the area of women and environment. On 21 June, the Employment, Social Policy, Health and Consumer Affairs Council (EPSCO) is expected to adopt conclusions on gender equality and climate change prepared by the Danish Presidency on the basis of EIGE’s report, including the first indicators.
