The European Parliament has called for more action from the Europe on gender equality. In its Plenary in Strasbourg the parliament voted for a report from Socialist and Democrat group MEP Maria Noichl (Germany) on the Commission strategy for Strategy for Gender Equality. From activists to Prime Ministers, members of the Party of European Socialists have been fighting for gender equality for years and deem it appropriate and necessary that the European Commission legislates to make sure that equality between women and men becomes reality. The strategy was at risk after the European Peoples Party tried to weaken the European stance on it, but MEP Noichl’s report defeated the EPP proposal.

The Party of European Socialists has today welcomed the European Parliament’s vote calling for the European Commission to make a new legislative proposal in order to unblock the discussions on the Maternity Leave directive.
