Gender equality – we’ve come a long way, haven’t we?

Is gender equality something you think about? Or react to, fight for? Is gender equality important to you and if so, in what way?

The Swedish achievements within gender equality are often hailed as inspiring examples to the rest of the world. Regardless of whether they have been made possible because of tradition, Swedish culture or legislation, several steps have been taken to ensure that women and men have equal opportunities and equal power to shape society and their own lives.
This toolkit exhibition would like to show some examples of these achievements and the work still needed to meet the six sub-goals of gender equality set up by the Swedish government:

  • Equal division of power and influence
  • Equality in Education
  • Economic equality
  • Equal distribution of unpaid housework and provision of care
  • Equality in Health
  • Men’s violence against women must stop

Instructions and manuals

Instructions will be available soon.
