Gender equality is a fundamental value of the EuropeanUnion! Measuring progress in gender equality is a part of policymaking.
Since its launch in 2013, the Gender Equality Index of the European Institute for Gender Equality (EIGE) has been recognised for increased awareness
about gender equality at the EU and national levels.
The Gender Equality Index is a composite indicator
that measures the complex concept of gender equality. It is a comprehensive measure for assessing the state of art and monitoring progress in gender
equality across the EU over time.
