Statement delivered by EWL Secretary General, Myria Vassiliadou, in Brussels.
The EWL has had the privilege of working very closely with Vice?President Wallström as part of our 50/50
campaign on equality between women and men in decision making, signed by over 300 high ranking political
figures from across Europe – including the Vice President of Spain Teresa Fernandez de la Vegas who is here with
us today. We have directly witnessed the Commissioner’s passion and commitment to women’s issues and
human rights so we thank her for this event today. We hope that she will be able to continue her work in a
position that will allow her direct involvement in the future in this matters – we rely on that.
