Gender Equality in Power and Decision-Making

Source: European Institute for Gender Equality

From Press Release:

Men dominate central banks, finance ministries and boardrooms throughout Europe with only one in every 25 top jobs held by a woman, according to a new report on equality between women and men...

The report looks at how men and women are represented in power and decision-making positions in the public, economic and social sectors in all 28 EU Member States between 2003 and 2014.

While progress has been made in many areas, especially in politics, it has been almost non- existent in finance, the report concludes. Of the 28 central bank governors, only one – of Cyprus – is a woman; and there are only two women finance ministers – from Romania and Sweden. Of the biggest companies publicly listed in the EU only 4 % have women Chief Executives.
