Evelyn Regner

Evelyn Regner, Vice President of the European Parliament:As a feminist, I am fighting for the European gender equality policies to arrive in the 21st century. The social-economic position of women in Europe must be improved, the glass ceiling – which is still hindering women from rising to their full potential – must finally be smashed and the pay gap closed. I have been fighting for the economic independence of women for many years now as the key to break the circle of violence and overall to achieve a good life for everyone. It is high time that we bridge all existing gender gaps. We cannot wait until they magically disappear. We need action and we need it now. I am convinced that the future of the EU is female!”
