The overall goal of this study is to map the existence of Gender Equality Plans (GEPs) in the public and private sectors in the EU Member States, according to EU-level available data and information. The study also aims to: analyse how GEPs have impacted/are impacting the economic situation of women in the EU, analyse national legislation and collective agreements in connection with GEPs, and analyse the impact of the crisis/austerity on GEPs. Two Member States – Austria and Spain – have been analysed in more depth to investigate the substance and impact of GEPs in the private and public sectors.
