Working hard for Wales in Europe

EU protection for women's rights

I've been frustrated with right wing rhetoric about 'cutting EU red tape'. I believe that what this really means is cutting back the protections that EU law provides for worker's and women's rights.

I've put together a briefing which gives an overview of how the EU protects women's rights and the approach of some right wing MEPs. I hope that it is useful for those of you campaigning over the coming months, or even for those just wanting to know more about what's at stake.
