The European Women’s Lobby calls on the forthcoming Cypriot Presidency to be a driving force for women’s rights in Europe especially in the current financial, economic and social crisis. The EWL has listed eight priorities including ensuring future EU funding for women’s rights and gender equality, taking leadership role in the negotiations aiming at adopting the revised maternity leave Directive, ensuring sexual and reproductive health and rights for all women living in Europe, supporting the adoption of binding EU-level legislation to reach parity on company boards.
