In March 2024 the Council of Europe’s Committee of Ministers has adopted a new Gender Equality Strategy for 2024-2029. It builds upon the vast legal and policy acquis of the Council of Europe as regards gender equality, as well as the achievements of the second Council of Europe Gender Equality Strategy 2018-2023.

In line with the Reykjavik commitments of the Heads of State and Government, it is structured around six thematic objectives, addressing existing and emerging challenges:

  • Preventing and combating gender stereotypes and sexism
  • Preventing and combating violence against women and girls and domestic violence
  • Ensuring equal access to justice for women and girls
  • Achieving balanced participation of women and men in political, public, social and economic life
  • Ensuring women’s empowerment and gender equality in relation to global and geopolitical challenges
  • Achieving gender mainstreaming and including an intersectional approach in all policies and measures
