European Women's Lobby
Founded in 1990, the European Women's Lobby (EWL) brings together over 4000 women's organisations in 26 Member States and countries in accession to the EU, working to achieve equality of women and men and to ensure that gender equality and women's human rights are taken into consideration in all European Union policies. EWL is a democratic organisation with transparent procedures of communication, decision-making and accountability. EWL recognises the diversity of women's lives and experiences and aims to include the interests of the many women who face multiple discrimination. The EWL membership is made up of 26 national coordinations as well as 18 European/International women's NGOs.
