This article aims to investigate whether EU membership has contributed to the promotion of female voices in the formulation of legislation relating to gender equal pay in Cyprus. It focuses particularly on the impact of EU accession on the national industrial relations system and on the involvement of social partners and broader civil society in the legislative process. Finally, it explores the post-accession development of NGOs specialising in women’s issues (women’s organisations).
