Sammanfattning (abstract):
The essay focus on the relationship beween gender equality and freedom of expression and the fact the EU does not include media in its current gender equality strategy, even though the member countries committed to both CEDAW and the Beijing Platform for Action. The essay is written as an expert contribution to the European Commission’s work on future strategies for gender equality. The publication offers a range of perspectives on what has been achieved to date, the challenges that lie ahead, and possible priorities for policy action to stimulate change and accelerate progress in key areas. The resulting essays by leading experts on gender equality, published under the auspices of the European Network of Experts on Gender Equality (ENEGE), address key questions such as: how important will a continued focus on gender equality be for Europe’s economy and society in future? How is the context in which gender equality policies operate likely to evolve? What should the key overarching priorities for the future be? What role should the EU play in this? And what implications does all of this have for the future gender equality policy agenda?
