The overall increase in support for increased EU involvement in equal treatment of men and women is 10 percentage points. It is the second highest increase amongst all areas researched. The most prominent changes are registered in Greece (increase of 21 percentage points) and Finland (increase of 20 percentage points). An exception to the general trend is seen only in Estonia and Italy with a decrease of respectively nine and two percentage points in the expectations for more involvement.
Only half or less than half of citizens think gender equality has been achieved in politics, at work and in leadership positions in companies and other organisations. The majority think there is a gender pay gap in their country and that this is unacceptable. Around 70 % would support legal measures to ensure parity between men and women in politics. When it comes to domestic violence against women, 74 % of Europeans think that this is common in their country.
