#EndGenderStereotypes

Girls are firefighters, too!

Breaking the mould: let’s challenge gender stereotypes

Look beyond the figures

35%
of Europeans believe that men are more ambitious than women.
36%
is how much less women overall earn on average compared with men.
20%
of graduates in information and communications technology (ICT) are women.

 

Tackling gender stereotypes in practice

We can only overcome gender stereotypes by taking concrete actions and encouraging career choices free from gender stereotypes. Find out about some EU-funded projects tackling gender stereotypes:

ECaRoM logo

Early Care and the Role of Men (ECaRoM)

The ECaRoM project strives to overcome the stereotype that men cannot be caregivers by demonstrating that the care sector offers fulfilling careers for both men and women.

Step up for gender equality (MIND THE GAP)

In many countries, gender stereotypes affect boys' and girls' education, careers, and lives. The project seeks to reduce the effect of gender stereotypes on girls' and boys' life choices in Italy, Spain, and Portugal.

Co-Funded by the European Union logo

Empowering underrepresented women in the energy sector (EUWES)

This project, implemented in Croatia, Slovenia, Spain, and Germany, will seek to identify and tackle the causes for a lack of female energy professionals. It will also create a network of female employees in the sector, encouraging them to become leaders in their field.

Co-Funded by the European Union logo

Equal Rural

This project will contribute to changing practices, strategies, and society's perception of the role of women in the agricultural sector in Portugal and Spain. It will raise awareness about the challenges that women face, but also about their value and potential in this sector.
