Gender Equality in Cyprus

YEU Cyprus is organizing a Structured Dialogue Event about "Gender Equality in Cyprus". If you would like to discuss about this topic and share your ideas with other youth (13 - 30 years old) then you have the chance to do it at our event!

Equality between women and men is one of the European Union’s founding principles. However, gender gaps remain in many areas, and in the labor market women are still over-represented in lower paid sectors and under-represented in decision-making positions
When it comes to gender equality, Cyprus is at the bottom of all EU countries bar one, with only Malta ranked lower.

What do you think are the main reason for gender inequality in Cyprus and what are its consequences in everyday life? What can be done to promote more equality both on the political, working and family environment?

Participants will receive a Participation Certificate.
