European Union Campaign

// 21 May 2009

European Flag

Apparently the European Women’s Lobby have been told by “high-level European decision makers” that women obviously don’t care about equal gender representation in Europe. The reason? Apparently they didn’t get “enough” (define that for me!) individual signatures on a petition on the issue despite having over 2,500 organisational signatures from women’s organisations.

So here’s the petition.

Whether you agree with the Europe Union or not equal gender representation is a good thing to have there. The 50/50 campaign is a campaign for women and men to be equally represented in all European Union institutions. No democracy without gender equality!

Signed and disseminated. I can understand people’s cynicism about the EU at times, but I think gender parity in representation is something we can all agree on!

Don’t care!? I didn’t even know there was one!
