Solidad Blanco, in memoriam

(Brussels 18 October) It is with great sadness that the European Women’s Lobby learned of the tragic death of Solidad Blanco who passed away following a car crash in Spain at the weekend. Solidad Blanco was Head of the European Commission’s Gender Equality Unit at the time when the EWL was in its early years. We could count on the unconditional support of Solidad both for our organisation and for women’s rights in Europe. In recent years, Solidad worked on environmental issues. Her openness, her concern for the issues, her humanity and her drive to make things better means that Europe has lost a great woman.

The EWL extends its sincere condolences to her daughter and to her extended family.
