Letter to President von der Leyen: An EU budget that fully finances equality between women and men as a political priority

[Brussels, 2 July] In light of the European Commission’s proposals on an EU recovery plan and long-term budget (the Multiannual Financial Framework 2021-2027), EWL are deeply concerned about the proposed cuts to critical funds that advance the rights of women and girls, cuts to decentralised agencies among which the European Institute for Gender Equality, as well as the stark absence of women’s perspectives across both proposals.
