This week Zita Gurmai, President of PES Women and Member of the European Parliament, shares her ideas for the PES manifesto on Yourspace. Among other things she comments on the representation of women in politics:
“The current Europe is an aging Europe: We live much longer. Long life expectancy is good news, but we have less children and the traditional family and traditional gender roles do not really exist anymore. We need women on the labour market and we need better reconciliation of work and modern family life. Women play an important role in society and should be equally represented in politics.”
PES Women brings together women – MP, MEPs and activists – from PES member parties to discuss and promote gender equality within and outside the PES.
