Women and girls' human rights can never be taken for granted and we must always fight to defend them! The 🇪🇺must lead by example and protect its women. @IratxeGarper and @fritzon_h voice our call for women's rights to be enshrined in the 🇪🇺 Charter of Fundamental Rights👇

We did it! The EU Parliament just backed including right to abortion in EU's Charter of Fundamental Rights. Our response to the US Supreme Court is clear. Progressives are leading the pushback against the global fight on women. @fritzon_h @MariaNoichl socialistsanddemocrats.eu/ne…

We gathered with other EP groups to show our solidarity with 🇺🇸 women. The decision by US Supreme Court to struck down the constitutional right to abortion, is the latest symptom of a war against women, especially the poorest. Abortion is a human right – we won’t remain silent.

Having a EU action plan for the social economy is a very important proposal, says @fritzon_h Work in the social economy must ensure decent working conditions, collective bargaining and increased female participation.

An absolutely shocking decision, taking the USA back 50 years. It is a huge blow to women’s fundamental rights. All our solidarity with American woman and all those fighting to overturn this backwards step. #RoeVsWade

USA:s högsta domstol river upp den nationella aborträtten. Det är en fullskalig attack mot flickors och kvinnors #MR. #EU måste markera starkt mot detta. #SRHR är en grundläggande rättighet. Dagens beslut är en skam och ett svek mot USA:s och världens flickor och kvinnor.

We are shocked that the US could overturn the historical #RoeVWade ruling and ban abortion. It is unacceptable. It's a warning for us: women’s rights must never be taken for granted. And we must always fight for them, also in Europe. Solidarity with women in the USA.

När Texas införde sin osmakliga abortlag sa vi att fler kommer att ta efter. Nu börjar det. Idaho följer i Texas spår och inskränker kvinnors och flickors mänskliga rättigheter. Det är vidrigt! Kvinnor och flickor har rätt till sina egna kroppar. svt.se/nyheter/utrikes/idaho…

Från dagens debatt i Strasbourg.
Replying to @TheProgressives
We can't take #SRHR for granted. It is a matter of democracy, justice, equality. It is about women and girls’ right to decide. There are states in the 🇪🇺 where women are denied the right to abortion. The @Europarl_EN must respect every individual’s rights over their own body.

Jämställdheten i Sverige är på 1:a plats i Europeiska unionen - igen. Samtidigt oroande hur pandemin saktat ner arbetet. Just nu kommer det ta 3 generationer tills vi är jämställda i EU. Vi måste öka takten och prioritera jämställdheten inom hela EU. eige.europa.eu/news/gender-e…
