An alternative to the politics of cuts and lower social standards

With its progressive reforms, the PES promotes a real alternative to the politics of cuts and lowest social standards.

Gathering measures ranging from decent wages, quality public services, fair taxation, investment in education and clean technology, the PES programme for progressive reforms shapes a new social and economic model that supports growth and jobs, favours environmental, economic and social sustainability and reduces inequalities.

With the Youth Guarantee, we have shown that another kind of reforms is possible, we are now ready to push for more.

Remembering Fiorella Ghilardotti (1946 - 2005)

by Zita Gurmai, PES Women President

Fiorella Ghilardotti was PES Women President from 1997 to 2004.

This time last year, thousands of people descended on Washington D.C. in what would become a historic march for women and what echoed into other capitals around the globe to advocate for women’s and human rights. Also in 2018,we are ready with all women to engage, lead and support the fight for #gender equality in the EU. Recent political developments show the importance of taking action and the ongoing protests prove that this is not just only out of anger, frustration and dissatisfaction, but a more underlining and deep issue of patriarchy, sexism and inequality that needs to be broken now. Ladies and gentlemen, go out on the streets, help your community, be vigilant about what happens around you, go to vote, empower women and girls and support our actions in 2018! Check out a great example: the #Womenmarch2018 called #PowerToThePolls to register more women to vote, and to elect more women and progressive candidates to public office.
