Women of Europe Award | 2018
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. While the role of women in the European project remains largely unrecognised, 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.
The Women of Europe Awards 2018 were handed out in 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
