Women's rights: Is Europe going backwards?

Gender equality is a core EU value, but the deficit of women in European politics is obvious. On average, only a quarter of national parliament seats are filled by women. Meanwhile, a proposed reform of the abortion law in Spain is seen by many as a significant step backwards. Some fear the move heralds a new era of conservative policies towards women. Ahead of Women's Day on March 8th, we invited a panel of women, all of them members of the European Parliament.

Watch the second part.
