The Central and Eastern European Network for Gender Issues (also known as CEE Gender Network) is hereby launching its first quarterly Newsletter “Progressive Men and Women on the Move for Gender Equality”. The Newsletter is dedicated to all progressive women and men who cherish human rights, women’s rights and fight for equality, social justice and the empowerment of women.
Progressive Men and Women on the Move for Gender Equality, June 2016
Established in 1994, as part of the European Forum for Democracy and Solidarity, the CEE Network continues support the capacities of progressive and social-democratic political parties and women’s organisations to integrate gender equality and women’s rights into policies, programmes and political, social and public activities.
We are a member of the Party of European Socialist Women (PESW) and observer member of the Party of European Socialists. Its signature activity is the annual think tank meeting – “Korčula School” intended to bring together progressive women and men political leaders, particularly from South Eastern Europe, to discuss gender equality issues from a political perspective.This year the meeting will discuss the plight of refugee and migrant women.
You can also follow us on our social media:

The Newsletter will bring information, political insights, comments and references relating to human rights and gender equality with particular focus on the Western Balkans and Central Europe.
We hope you will find the Newsletter useful and we encourage your contributions, comments and references.
