"Empowering women brings benefits, not only in politics and the EU, but in our society in general. While chances for women have improved over the last years, we still need to make progress, especially in balancing family and work life. I believe in a future with confident and courageous women in every part of society, business and politics."
"Europe should provide the secure environment for all women to realize their own ideas in life, without hindrances and barriers to attain their goals as they see them."
"Women in politics play a decisive role in raising awareness and empowering other women throughout society to believe in themselves and their qualities. Europe needs strong women in society, business and politics to move Europe forward and to offer new and different perspectives on all matters."
"Women posess great power: women mean faster economic growth, better results of enterprises, closer cooperation between countries, long-lasting peace treaties, decisions and resolutions on social and employment matters, empathy, love, authentic system of values. Progress and strength have a female face. This is why it would be more appropriate to ask: what can women do for Europe? And they can do a lot- that is why Europe should invest and believe in women. Failing to make use of women’s strong sides is a great loss. For everybody!"
