Gender Equality Index published

The European Institute for Gender Equality (EIGE) from Lithuania has published the gender equality index, which provides a comprehensive view of gender equality among EU member states. It highlights existing room for improvement in all EU member states in six domains: work, money, knowledge, time, power and health. Furthermore, two intersecting domains - intersecting inequalities and violence - are analysed. The index is an excellent tool for identifying shortcomings in each member state as well as for comparing the performance of several member states in comparison to each other and the EU average in the field of gender equality.

Although EaP countries are not covered by the index, it sill provides a useful tool for all organisations working on gender equality in the EaP region and could serve as an inspiration for a similar tool for the EaP.

The index is available here.

An informative video further explaining the index is available here.
