Relationships between women and men, young women in education,
employment, health, violence, the media, decision-making and European
legislation on equality between women and men : these are the themes that
young European women have chosen to analyse in this guide. The aim is to
highlight where progress has been made towards equality between women
and men in Europe and to identify how the European Union can contribute
to further progress.
From October 1999 to June 2001, the EWL led the project ’Mobilise Young Women for Equality in Europe’. The overall objective of this project was to support the integration of young women’s concerns into European and national policy developments through an increased participation of young women in organised actions and decision-making. Activities taking place within the EWL young women’s project led to the setting up of a network of national coordinators and to the publication of a Young Women’s Guide to equality, available in all official languages of the EU.
