The Council is represented in a number of boards, committees and councils e.g. in the European Women´s Lobby and the European Economic and Social Committee (EESC).
The Women´s Council Denmark was established in 1899 as the common voice for Danish women internationally. However, gathering women from all of society the Council soon became a strong driver for Danish women´s rights and liberation and has pushed for gender equality in Denmark and globally ever since.
