Report on equality between women and men 2010

Luxembourg: Publications Office of the European Union, 2010 - ISBN 978-92-79-14219-2  - doi 10.2767/86519


While both women and men have lost jobs during the downturn, women face a higher risk of remaining unemployed and are in a generally weaker position on the labour market. That emerges from 2010 edition of the European Commission´s report on equality between women and men, which underlines the persisting challenges for gender equality in Europe and calls for a stronger gender dimension as part of the EU´s future strategy for growth and jobs.
