About European Simone vail pact

Equality between women and men is a fundamental right at the heart of the European project, enshrined in the European Treaties. As early as 1979, Simone Veil was elected the first President of the European Parliament.

However, even if our Union is the area where women are best protected, the whole exercise of this right is still far from being a reality in Europe today. In some situations, the existing acquis is even threatened or, worse, violated.

The purpose of this declaration is to preserve, promote and strengthen the rights of all women at all levels, European, national and local, in all areas, public and private, for all generations, in all the Member States of the European Union, under the aegis of the European institutions.

It is a pact between signatories to promote an upwards alignment of women’s rights in Europe at their level of responsibility. We give this pact the name of the one who symbolises the strength of European women: Simone Veil.Visit website »
