I am a politician, feminist, crossword puzzle lover and a real “Ruhrpott” child. My political commitment stems from my passion: since 2014, I have been a Member of the Greens/EFA Group in the European Parliament. I campaign for the rights of LGBTI people and against the exploitation of European workers. I am committed to women’s rights and to strengthening Europe’s regions.


Achievements we took for granted are subject to right-wing attacks these days. Opponents of democracy are trying to turn back time. Using my political work, I stand firmly against the backlash and I’ll keep fighting for a progressive and fair Europe!

Real emancipatory policies all over Europe are long overdue. As a Member of the Committee on Women’s Rights and Gender Equality, Terry works, among other things, towards more women on boards in politics and the economy as well as gender equality in the fields of the labour market and health services.

Terry fights for progressive anti-discrimination policies so that no one in Europe can be discriminated because of their sexual orientation or gender identity. Everyone has to be able to be and love whoever they want to.

The regional policy of the European Union is an enormous investment machine: One third of the total budget of the EU flows into these funds. This money has to be used in a reasonable, sustainable and social way – in the Ruhr Area, in North Rhine-Westphalia and all over Europe!
