Sixty-one percent of European women believe they have no exact ideas of actions the European Union is implementing in favour of gender equality.
For the ninth consecutive year, Mazars, an international audit and consulting group with accounting, management, tax and legal services, is a partner to the Women’s Forum, which was held in Deauville from 14 to 16 October, 2015. On this occasion, the results of a study highlighting the perception that women have about Europe, and more precisely, their vision of what has been accomplished in progress towards gender equality, will be published.
For Mazars, this is an issue that is very important, as the Group has promoted parity and gender equality for many years.
Europe helps to achieve progress in women’s rights. In spite of what seems to be a well-established fact, their knowledge on the role Europe plays in this subject remains quite obscure, as 49% of European women questioned declare that they are not aware of actions taken by European Union institutions, when they are the main targets. It also would seem that European women are the ones who have the least amount of knowledge on the role Europe plays in promoting gender equality. The main subject mentioned remains politics, which stands out far in front of the fight against stereotypes.
