THE EQUALITY / WEB IN AN ENLARGED EUROPE
a selection of national equality bodies, women’s organizations, women’s studies and resource centres in the EU 27

In 2008 our dreams were finally put into reality. With united forces the collaborators of the resource centre of Amazone explored the virtual equal opportunities landscape in the 27 European Member States in order to identify the different actors responsible for the equality between women and men. Nearly 200 websites were chosen regarding to their availability in English or for their representative character and were described in a brief summary. During 2009 we revised the 2008 edition and we translated the original overview, of which a Dutch and French version were available, into English on behalf of the ATHENA3 Working group 3A. Strengthening the Societal Impact of Women Studies. Recently, in the beginning of February 2010 a second revision has been made.

With this EU Member States organization chart, Amazone wants to contribute to the accessibility and the visibility of the actors, the policies and the events on equal opportunities between w/m in the different EU countries. The organization chart should increase the possibility of networking and facilitate the acquaintance of politicians, academics and non-governmental organizations with research, campaigns, actions and equal opportunities strategies on national and regional levels.

The selection is related to official institutions on equality opportunities in each country, to the most important non-governmental organizations striving for the equality between w/m and to research and information centres for women and gender studies. We kindly ask members of WINE, members of ATGENDER and previous ATHENA members to give suggestions and remarks on this selection. Your input will enable the Amazone Information Centre to keep paste with institutional evolutions in the field of equality between w/m throughout in Europe.
