Lina Galvez, MEP
On Monday, 10 May 2021, the Committee on Women's Rights and Gender Equality (FEMM) will hold an exchange of views on the draft opinion to the Report on the Proposal for a directive on adequate minimum wages in the European Union.

The draft opinion underlines that minimum wages can be one element of policies aiming at overcoming poverty and reducing inequalities, including those between men and women. Studies show that, while women constitute 48% of employees at the EU, they make up 59% of minimum wage earners. Women are too one of the main sub-minimum wage earners, together with young workers, workers with lower education, or rural workers with dependent children. This is especially relevant in some sectors that have proved to be essential during the COVID19 pandemic. 81% of the EU's Long Term Care workforce is female.

On 11 May 2021, the Committee on Women's Rights and Gender Equality (FEMM) will vote on the draft report on "The situation of sexual and reproductive health and rights in the EU, in the frame of women's health".

Sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) are one of the key issues in the discussion on human rights. These rights are inseparable from the realisation of the fundamental right to health, as well as the achievement of gender equality and the elimination of gender based violence.

503 amendments have been tabled and 51 compromise amendments have been proposed.

The vote on amendments will take place on 10 May 2021. The vote on the final text will take place on 11 May 2021.
