Recovery measures must be gender-sensitive, say call European regions and cities

EU's gender-equality strategy should also address the impact of Covid-19 pandemic, the European Committee of the Regions (CoR) has stressed in an opinion adopted at the assembly's Plenary session on 14 October. The European Union's strategy – entitled A Union of Equality: Gender Equality Strategy 2020-2025 – needs to involve local and regional authorities in its governance as they have a crucial role to play and can be key actors in addressing gender equality through their specific competences, the CoR said.
