Battle with Brussels Germany to Lobby against EU Gender Quota

Berlin plans to fight the proposed EU-wide gender quota for boards of publicly-traded companies, according to a media report on Wednesday. German representatives in Brussels have been instructed to block the measure. Instead, the government wants member states to come up with their own rules.
Both Chancellor Merkel and Family Minister Schröder oppose EU-wide gender quotas.
