Annual report 2008


Importantly, 2008 saw the launch of the EWL 50/50 Campaign for
Democracy, aiming at ensuring the equal representation of women and
men in European decision-making. This highly publicited campaign has
attracted a lot of support already and will be the spearhead of the EWL
activities in view of the European elections of June 2009.
Throughout 2008, the EWL continued its crucial work in supporting policies
and legislation aiming at ensuring women’s economic independence,
an issue currently acquiring momentum as the economic recession challenges
the gains women have made over the past few decades.
I also would like to stress the importance of our work in fighting against
all forms of violence against women, including the very successful completion
of a fruitful project that the EWL has been conducting since 2005
with our partners in the Nordic-Baltic region to support women victims
of trafficking, the results of which we hope to sustain in the future.
