The ETF Women’s Committee was created in May 2001 in Zagreb, by a decision of the 1st ETF Ordinary Congress. It is an ETF policymaking body.
On the occasion of ETF’s 6th Congress, the ETF Women’s Committee underwent a number of changes to broaden the basis for more engagement from ETF’s members: the establishment of an ETF Women’s Steering Committee, and the opening of the ETF Women’s Committee to all affiliated unions declaring women’s membership.
The ETF Women’s Committee now consists of women representatives from all ETF affiliated unions declaring women membership, meaning each affiliated union declaring women membership shall have the right to participate in the work of the Women’s Committee.
