In Case C‑450/18, Advocate General concludes that -

‘Article 4(1) of Council Directive 79/7/EEC of 19 December 1978 on the progressive implementation of the principle of equal treatment for men and women in matters of social security is to be interpreted as precluding a national provision such as the one at issue in the present case, which, on the one hand, confers the right to receive a pension supplement on women who are mothers of two or more children and who become entitled to a contributory permanent incapacity pension after its entry into force, but, on the other hand, does not contain any possibility to grant that right to men in any situation.’
