Briefing note: LGBTI-inclusive Gender Equality work

It is a pivotal moment in Europe, and beyond, when it comes to discussions of gender and gender equality.

With the European Commission’s next Gender Equality Strategy on the near horizon, it is vital to ensure that the Strategy and the resulting policies, programmes, and positions are comprehensive and modern, addressing the gender-based needs of all women and girls in Europe and acknowledging the existence of non-binary and third gender European and global citizens.

On our briefing note, you can find points to remember in these ongoing discussions on inclusive gender equality policies and how to best frame issues impacting LBTI women, as well as non-binary people, where appropriate.

This is a briefing note prepared by ILGA-Europe.

For more information, you can contact Cianán Russell, cianan@ilga-europe.org or Katrin Hugendubel, katrin@ilga-europe.org
