Report on Progress on Equality between Women and Men in 2010

This eighth report on equality between men and women describes developments towards gender equality in the European Union in 2010. Last year was a significant year for the European Commission’s work of advancing gender equality. We adopted a Women’s Charter on 5 March 2010 and by doing so, committed to strengthening gender equality in all our policies. We also adopted the Strategy for Equality between Women and Men (2010-2015) on 21 September which is an action plan to promote gender equality that will guide our actions for the period 2010-2015. These actions represent a political commitment by each member of the European Commission to advance equality between women and men in their own portfolios.
