The global movement for women’s rights in 2010 marks 15 years of activism on the basis of the shared framework and vision enshrined in the groundbreaking Beijing Platform for Action (BPfA). In Europe, this year also represents a milestone for thousands of women’s associations from across the region as it marks 20 years since the foundation of the European Women’s Lobby (EWL).
Over the last two decades, the EWL has acted as a forum for increased exchange, cooperation and integration, allowing the women’s organisations of Europe to play an active role in shaping the European framework for gender equality. As a key part of its activism, the EWL aims to ensure that the implementation of the BPfA by both the European Union (EU) and its Member States remains high on the political agenda.
