2022 new report!
"Umeå has for a long time had a goal when working with gender equality, that is to create conditions for men and women to have equal power to shape society as well as their own lives."
"Vienna realised very early on that there is a strong connection between the quality of everyday life and the physical structure of a city, so we started to take care ourselves of public spaces."
"Technologies are not always connected to improving our quality of life and not always designed to cater to different needs, including women's needs."
"We created a working platform called 'Network for Equality' and it's for citizens and towns committed to gender equality, to push and create gender-sensitive policies."
"The city of Athens set up a working group to properly consult refugee and migrant women on their specific needs and interests in the city, so that we can hopefully design policies to assist them."
"Are there women in the public space? If so, what are they doing? Are they doing the same thing as men? Or are they using the public space differently? Are they alone with their children?"
"We know that job segregation, which is a contributing factor to the gender pay gap, starts in the early years. It starts with someone handing a doll to a girl and a toy truck to a boy."
"Gender equality is about sharing space with all. A space where everyone feels comfortable and welcome."
"It's not only a matter of 50/50 representation. It's also about which positions women and men take at different levels."
