Sustainable economic and social progress can only be achieved through policies that equally benefit women and men. The Federal Government wants women and men to be able to live off their work equally well – both caring for those who need to be cared for. Women and men should jointly share responsibility for the economy, democracy, culture and science of our country.
Gender equality issues are everywhere. Therefore, the Federal Government has stated nine goals for the different social sectors in its gender equality strategy and indicates which specific measures need to be taken for these goals to be reached.
