"Women are the backbone of society, especially in rural and remote areas. By supporting women we also support our traditions and the values we hold dear. That is what I stand in for."
"I am convinced of women\'s potential to make a better Europe. That is why we must work at increasing women\'s participation in the labour market, with equal opportunities in terms of pay and positions and in the political and economic decision-making. For a more prosperous, peaceful Europe, in harmony with its core values."
"Talents of women in the European Union are an under-exploited source of expertise, creativity and female strength. In this rapidly evolving world and society, it is of huge importance to have women aboard. Especially in these sectors who are mainly considered as male, such as the digital sector and STEM. It is one of my priorities to reduce the gender pay and pension gap and to fight against the feminisation of poverty. A European Union that gives women all opportunities they deserve will be more social, more resilient and more powerful!"
