Slovak MEP reelected head of EP's women's rights committee

MEMBERS of the European Parliament's Committee for Women's Rights and Gender Equality unanimously re-elected incumbent chairperson Anna Záborská on February 1. Záborská is a Slovak MEP from the Christian Democratic Movement (KDH).

"I am delighted that after two years of work I won the trust of my colleagues from other [political backgrounds] as well," Záborská told the SITA news wire.

The Committee for Women's Rights and Gender Equality has 40 members, and all were present for the vote. The election of the conservative Záborská as the head of the committee two years ago was accompanied by protests from leftist parties. Záborská thinks that their changed attitude is a result of the new content and style of the committee's work.

"I tried to focus on topics which concern all women regardless their political affiliation," she said.
