Frankfurter Rundschau writes about the petition to the leaders of Europe, demanding the woman president of the European Commission. Slavenka Drakulic is among many intellectuals who signed this open letter.
Before the European parliament election in May, the Delors Institute initiated a petition, stating:
“We want a European leadership that reflects Europe. All of Europe. Women too. … Equal representation is in everyone’s interest. It is not a woman issue.
