PES Women brochure - "A feminist economy for Europe – towards a progressive economic system that works for women"
Building on the long-standing commitment of the PES family to close gender gaps in the labour market, PES Women has put forward detailed proposals for an economic system of equality that works for both women and men.
Following several months of preparation and consultation with member and partner organisations, academics and civil society actors, we present the brochure: A feminist economy for Europe – towards a progressive economic system that works for women.
This publication contains PES Women’s vision for a progressive, feminist economy for Europe, set out in four pillars: 1. Creating an inclusive and gender equal labour market, 2. Recognising the value of the care economy, 3. Promoting gender-just business practices, and 4. Gender mainstreaming economic transitions.
The four pillars are complemented with best practice examples and policy proposals. The brochure contains a short history of our current economic system seen through women’s eyes, an overview of the case for a feminist economy, and a summary of concrete steps to achieve it.
We invite everyone to examine this publication, to share it and to build upon it to achieve gender equality.
