Since 2013, the European social partners in the rail sector have published an annual report on the development of women’s employment in the rail sector in Europe.
The reports are first of all statistical reports and as such unique in the transport sector in Europe. But they also promote and monitor the implementation of the CER-ETF Joint Recommendations for a better representation and integration of women in the railway sector.
Five Women in Rail (WIR) reports have been published in 2013 (2012 data), 2014 (2013 data), 2016 (2014 data), 2017 (2015 data) and 2018 (2017 data). Women employment increased slightly from 19,5% in 2012 to 20,9% in 2017. More details on the share of women in different professions, leadership, etc, can be found in the reports.
