Women of Europe Awards


The Women of Europe Awards are organised by the European Movement International and the European Women’s Lobby, building upon the national awards of several National European Movement Councils. The awards are handed out annually to honour women striving to advance the European project in their professional or private capacity. The role of women in the European project remains largely unrecognised, and the awards highlight the contribution of women in promoting and advancing European issues, and to increase the presence and involvement of women in debates about Europe and its future.

2017 Women of Europe Awards

The 2017 Women of Europe Awards will be handed out on 29 November 2017 in Brussels. It will feature four categories:

  • Woman in Power – showing extraordinary political leadership in Europe;
  • Woman in Action – undertaking extraordinary actions at grassroots level in Europe;
  • Woman in Business – advancing European integration with entrepreneurial spirit;
  • Woman in Youth Activism – for women aged 15 to 30 strengthening the voice of young women in Europe.

Members of the European Movement International and the European Women’s Lobby nominate candidates for the above categories. The Woman in Youth Activism category is organised in cooperation with the European Youth Forum.
