EU cohesion policy: Commission 2013 strategic report – news

http://ec.europa.eu/social/main.jsp?langId=en&catId=89&newsId=1861&furtherNews=yes

Interesting to note that among the participants in European Social Fund funded programmes from 2007 to 2010 (“some 12.5 million people took part in actions supporting access to employment and 2.4 million went on to find work within six months” according to the EC), 52% were women, and in some countries (“four”), women accounted for even more than 60% of those taking part in such programmes … .

Why are there more women, in the EU, unemployed and taking part in ESF-funded programmes, than men? Is there maybe something to revise about our assumption that we Europeans are champions in Human Rights and in gender equality in particular?
