Katrine Marcal – history of woman and innovation

Why has Innovation, science and technology for so long been associated with men? How come we were able to send a man to the moon before we developed suitcases with wheels? Author and financial journalist Katrine Marçal reflects on gender, science and otherqueries. We live in challenging times and, like Marçal says: ‘We need to use all of the potential we have’ –not just the male half of it.

Parenting – an equal opportunity

Parenting – an equal opportunity

Sweden was the first country in the world to introduce parental leave for both mothers and fathers in 1974, and today parents are offered 480 days of parental leave. The Swedish Institute wants to highlight the effects that Sweden’s parental policy has on gender equality.

Parental leave means that women in Sweden don’t have to choose between a career and a family. For fathers, it means an opportunity to experience a closer bond with their children through shared responsibilities. Progress, certainly, but fathers still only use 30 per cent of all parental leave days, so there’s more work to do.

This toolkit, Parenting – an equal opportunity, comprises a photo exhibition, including a video, and social media materials.

For this exhibition, documentary photographer Elin Berge has portrayed and interviewed parents in Sweden who strive to live equal lives. Berge’s 23 photos offer an insight into the endeavour of these parents to move beyond deeply rooted conceptions of gender roles and expectations towards a more equal partnership.

Images that change the world in Zagreb

The embassy of Sweden in Zagreb have worked with the Images that change the world exhibition outdoors with rented stands at the Cvjetni trg square in Zagreb.

We asked Mirna about the feedback on the exhibition since the content might be a bit provocative. Mirna Juric at the embassy: “We have some negative comments on social networks, but generally the response from people is positive. We have a lot of  media articles, several radio announcements and one TV media clip. Fortunately the media communication was positive and proactive. It feels like a good result. It’s wonderful if we can start discussions and get reactions on inclusion.

The exhibition will travel on to Split in Croatia during 2021.

The Swedish approach to fairness (Arabic)

The Swedish approach to fairness (Arabic)

Sweden ranks as one of the world’s most gender-egalitarian countries, based on a firm belief that men and women should share power and influence equally. An extensive welfare system makes it easier for both sexes to balance work and family life. However, the Government recognises that there is still room for improvement in many areas.
