This chapter draws on a project looking at the development of gender-sensitive employment policies in the EU to report how policy tensions have evolved between national and supranational agencies. The first section focuses on the development of gender equality as a social objective of the EU. The second section examines the rise and fall of gender mainstreaming within the European Employment Strategy (EES) and the Growth and Jobs Strategy. The third section evaluates the recent gender equality initiatives within the EU and identifies some positive developments, both in defining the goal of a more gender equal society and in the analysis of the factors that act as barriers to equality within the economic and social systems in Europe. The chapter ends with some reflections on the future for gender equality within the European project.
