The world is dominated by men. No solutions will result from any discussion if gender justice is not taken into account.

Globally, there has been some progress in gender equality, but we are nowhere near equality of opportunity. Access to education, employment, equal pay for work of equal value, a political career, a loan or a leadership position is far more difficult for women than for men – while in many places, violence against women remains a taboo. SWISSAID is committed to gender equality and always involves men in its gender-based work, as this is the only way to create sustainable change.
