Tackling violence against women, fighting for equality, empowerment and strengthening women’s rights will be at the centre of the Party of European Socialists’ campaign for the European elections. A European Commission headed up by Frans Timmermans will introduce a binding EU Gender Equality Strategy to close the gender pay and pension gap, improve work-life balance, and combat sexual harassment and gender-based violence.
