All about the "Women of the Year" - Europe Awards

Brussels , 4th of December 2019:
On 4th of December 2019,  The International European Movement and the European Women's Lobby hosted the fourth annual Women of Europe Awards at the Bellevue in Brussels.

Today, we have had the honour of celebrating the achievements of some truly inspirational and visionary women at the Women of Europe Awards 2019. All the winners and nominees have had such far-reaching positive impacts both locally and globally. While it is important to acknowledge that our work to enhance the recognition of women in our societies is far from done, the contribution of the winners tonight demonstrate the power and influence that women can have in bringing about positive change,” said Eva Maydell MEP, President of the European Movement International and chair of the jury.

The Women of Europe awards are a great opportunity to honour, thank and amplify the voices of fantastic women coming from all across Europe who are shaping our future. The Awards happen at a particularly important moment, with the new European institutions taking office, as they give visibility to women and girls’ diverse identities and experiences in Europe, which have to be acknowledged and addressed by EU policies,” said Gwendoline Lefevre, President of the European Women’s Lobby and member of the jury.  The Women of Europe Awards 2019 are awarded in four categories, and the winners are:
