"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."
"Women posess great power: women mean faster economic growth, better results of enterprises, closer cooperation between countries, long-lasting peace treaties, decisions and resolutions on social and employment matters, empathy, love, authentic system of values. Progress and strength have a female face. This is why it would be more appropriate to ask: what can women do for Europe? And they can do a lot- that is why Europe should invest and believe in women. Failing to make use of women’s strong sides is a great loss. For everybody!"
"The point of policy is not to be right, but to be right after all."
