As an individual, you can become a Friend of the EWL and help to make Equal Europe a reality!

Be among the first ‘Friends’ of the European Women’s Lobby

Support women’s rights all over Europe!

Posted on 8 November 2012

Our latest friendsmailing - Autumn 2013

Do you believe that women’s rights are human rights and that it is high time equality between women and men was made a reality? You can do your part! By becoming a Friend of the European Women’s Lobby (EWL), you invest in a brighter future of each and every girl and woman in Europe. Every day, the EWL is campaigning for a gender equal Europe. The regular financial support of the Friends of the EWL can ensure the existence of an independent voice for women’s rights in Europe.

As a Friend of the EWL, you will receive the EWL’s weekly newsletter and the exclusive ’Friends’ letters’ with all the news about our work, our publications in electronic format and our ’Feminist Friends Forever’ badge. Your regular contribution is tax-deductible if you live in the TGE countries (click here to find your national donation partner). Through your national donation partner, you can transfer your donation in order to become an EWL Friend, and to receive you personal tax rebate.

The following are just two recent success stories of the EWL:

  • After long years of lobbying, things are finally moving to improve the representation of women and men in economic decision-making: the European Commission considers introducing quotas to increase the representation of women in corporate boards from the current 13% of women.
  • Almost every other woman in Europe will experience male violence during her lifetime. The EWL is more committed than ever to put the fight against all forms of male violence against women on the European political agenda. Hundreds of individuals, NGOs and European and national decision-makers have joined the EWL’s coalition for a European Year to end violence against women and for comprehensive EU action in this area.

Together, with the support of EWL Friends, we can achieve more!
