♀️♂️ Sweden believes that everyone, regardless of gender, should have the right to work and support themselves. As well as to balance career and family life.

Sweden has a long history of efforts aimed at making the labour market more gender equal. Here are 5 examples:

🏫 It starts at school, where equal rights and opportunities for everyone is a guiding principle.

💶 At work, there’s still a pay gap, with men getting paid nearly 10% more than women. But the gap is shrinking, with the Swedish Women’s Lobby being one of the actors promoting equal pay.

👨‍👩‍👧‍👧 For parents, Sweden’s gender-neutral parental leave of 480 days and affordable childcare make it possible for both women and men to balance work and family life.

⚖️ Since 1980, gender discrimination in the workplace has been illegal in Sweden. And in 2009, the Discrimination Act came into force, demanding that employers not only actively promote equality between men and women, but also take measures against harassment. Cases of discrimination can be reported to the Swedish Equality Ombudsman.

🇸🇪 Gender equality has long been central to Swedish government. Over the years, the portfolio of gender equality has moved around between different departments, but has most often been assigned to the Ministry of Employment.
