'Brussels was all men': the painful progress towards EU gender equality
When it was first announced, in September, the incoming commission was set to be the most gender-balanced in EU history, with 13 women and 14 men, but that has now changed to 11 women and 13 men so far confirmed, and three commissioners-designate still to be confirmed. Progress towards equality has stalled in many countries, including the UK, according to the latest report from the European Institute for Gender Equality Eige.

All three mean women lose out on time for paid employment, political activity or leisure.

The comic-book image provoked outrage. Belgian equality minister Nawal Ben Hamou described it as sickening and totally irresponsible. The ad was taken down, and the Dutch-owned company apologised.
