Females in front

250 million women in the EU. Not a single one good enough?

In all its activities, the Union shall aim to eliminate inequalities and to promote equality, between men and women says the Lisbon Treaty. The Treaty of Lisbon introduces the principle of participatory democracy with a "citizen's initiative" which requires the signatures from a minimum of 1 million EU citizens from a significant number of Member States.

During the coming 12 months, four politicians will be appointed as leaders of the European Union. For fifty years now, the picture of European political leadership has remained the same. It is time for a change. International top posts should always go to the most competent candidate. There are 250 million women in Europe; it should not be too hard to find qualified candidates among all these. With 1 million signatures, we can ask the Commission to take action to secure that the Union fulfils the Treaty's goal of gender equality, starting with the upcoming nominations.

If you wish to see at least one female appointed as leader of the EU
Sign here for a change!
