What we do
Equality between women and men
Gender equality means an equal visibility, empowerment, responsibility and participation of both sexes in all spheres of public and private life. It also means an equal access to, and distribution of resources between women and men.
It means accepting and valuing equally the differences of women and men and the diverse roles they play in society.
