(Brussels, Council of the European Union, Press Room)
Gender Equality Index Gender Equality Index Gender Equality Index

This Conference launched Gender Equality Index, a rich report of the statistical survey carried out by European Institute for Gender Equality (EIGE) in order to evaluate and present the state of gender equality in the EU. The first Gender Equality Index reveals that the EU reached only half way towards a gender-equal society, with an average EU score of 54 (where 1 stands for no gender equality and 100 for full gender equality). Then, the main question raised by the report is: "If there are no urgent and effective measures introduced, how long will it take the EU to achieve a gender-equal society?"
