Wow. I had not really grasped the amount of feminist energy within the European Green Party gender network. Some quotes from the today’s meeting (disclaimer: they might not be 100 % accurate):
“I think we should definitely push for gender quotas.”
“I think all quotas are bad!”
“The problem is that women don’t want to apply for high positions.”
“The problems in Northern and Southern Europe are different, for example you don’t have gender pay gap.”
“We have gender pay gap.”
“What is the Femme Committee [the European Parliament Committee on Women’s rights and gender equality]?”
“What is 50+ quota?”
“We have the problem that there are more women than men in the party.”
Yeah. We’re the Feminists!
