Women in high places: the EU's diplomatic (gender) balancing act

218 Signatures Goal: 250

Women today make up just over 51% of the European Union's population, almost 59% of its workforce, and a large part of its political and business leadership. They represent on average 51% of EU member states' foreign services. The External Relations and Development Directorate Generals of the European Commission lag considerably behind that gender balance, with only 37% of them being women. 

Proper gender representation is logic, argues the UNSR on Sexual Violence in Conflict, Margot Wallstrom - former Vice-President of the Commission - "Including women in the decision-making process is about democratic representation. Nothing more and nothing less."

Stop ignoring the facts. More women should be in senior and decision making positions. There is still time to correct the trajectory, but it is running out fast. Please add your name to support Women in International Security (WIIS) Brussels' call to the EU High Representative, the President of the European Council, the President of the European Commission, and the leaders of the EU’s member states.
