Gender equality as a potential

A Letter of the UBC Working Group on Gender Equality

Gender equality as a potential for modern and attractive cities in the UBC

The UBC Working Group on Gender Equality sent out the letter to the UBC cities and the Commissions inviting to more intensive cooperation on gender mainstreaming.

"Gender equality is fundamental to the further development of every modern, democratic city" - the letter states. "Some of the challenges that most cities experience are women's lower affiliation (than men's) in working life, their bigger workload at home, lower wage levels of women in comparison to men, low number of female leaders, engendering of the educational and working life, under-representation of women in media - as sources and as interviewees."

The WGGE announces its seminar devoted to “The European Charter for Equality of Women and Men in Local Life” which will take place in Gdańsk on 11 April 2017.
