This article analyses the gender dimension of the European Commission's proposals to revise the governance of the European Union in response to the crisis by increasing the powers of the European Union level. The proposed change in the location of the subsidiarity boundary has significant gender implications: subsidiarity is gendered. The alternative strategies for economic growth and security have implications for democracy and gender equality. The concepts of 'gender regime' (and its social-democratic and neoliberal varieties) and 'project' are developed and applied. The possibility of the embedding of the gender-equality project in the new institutions proposed by the Commission is discussed.
