Poster presentation for the 2009 University Scholars Day at the University of North Texas discussing women's equality in the European Union (EU).
Abstract: This project analyzes how the formation of the European Union (EU) has affected women's roles and status in European society. The EU has established a gender equality policy, which originated with an equal pay for equal work article in the 1957 Treaty of Rome and was more recently expanded with the 1997 Treaty of Amsterdam, which called for an end to all discrimination based on sex. However, the EU's gender equality goals have failed to materialize in many member nations. The aim of this research is to determine to what extent the EU has and has not affected women by examining economic indicators, rates of women's participation in government, and information regarding women's roles in their families before and after the passage of EU gender equality policies.
