"In Europe, women and men should have the same rights under the same conditions to take care of a family and develop their professional careers."
"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."
"I am convinced of women\'s potential to make a better Europe. That is why we must work at increasing women\'s participation in the labour market, with equal opportunities in terms of pay and positions and in the political and economic decision-making. For a more prosperous, peaceful Europe, in harmony with its core values."
""Good policy and decision making must take into consideration the perspective of all stakeholders. Women and man are equal stakeholders and consequently equal contributors to the formulation of policies and in decision making. It is important that obstacles for participation of women in policy and decision making are addressed and removed.""
"It is very important in Europe nowadays that women be treated without any prejudice and discrimination and have, as well as men, equal opportunities in all areas of public and private sector."
