 This eighth report on equality between men and women describes developments towards genderequality in the European Union in 2010. Last year was a signicant year or the European Commission’swork o advancing gender equality. We adopted a Women’s Charter on 5 March 2010 and by doing so,committed to strengthening gender equality in all our policies. We also adopted the Strategy or Equal-ity between Women and Men (2010-2015) on 21 September which is an action plan to promote genderequality that will guide our actions or the period 2010-2015. These actions represent a political com-mitment by each member o the European Commission to advance equality between women and menin their own portolios. The European Union was hit by the nancial crisis in 2010, and this is why all EU policies now need toocus on making a stronger contribution to economic recovery, sound management practices andhigher growth potential. For me, this brings the issue o enhancing emale participation in the decisionmaking o companies to the oreront o the political agenda in the coming years. I rmly believe thathaving more women in boardrooms will enhance economic productivity. I am also convinced that theglobal nancial crisis would not have happened with “Lehman Sisters”.We need urther progress in 2011, and I look orward to our rst high-level dialogue on gender equalityinvolving the European Parliament, the Council presidencies and key stakeholders such as the Europeansocial partners and civil society. This report will be the basis o this dialogue aimed at discussing theimplementation o our strategy and urther action. Gender equality is more than just a slogan; it is oursocial and economic responsibility. I am condent that together, we can make it happen.
