New film on gender mainstreaming in local life
By applying the strategy of Gender Mainstreaming, local and regional authorities can act to improve the quality of their services provided to citizens. This film made by the Swedish Association of Local Authorities and Regions (SALAR) shows concrete examples on how the gender perspective can be implemented in a variety of municipal competencies such as snow removal, ambulance transport and school performance. The film illustrates how the principle of gender mainstreaming can be applied in practice and how it allows citizens, municipalities and regions to strengthen gender equality in order to improve citizens’ everyday life. The film was originally made in Swedish, but has now been translated into English, German, French, Spanish and Finnish. Enjoy!
