Welcome on the new website…

…dedicated to the european Charter of equality for women and men in local life!

The Observatory of the Charter has the pleasure to welcome you to its new website launched on the 31st of January 2013 on occasion of the International Conference of Local Elected Women “Gender Equality: a priority for global development” in Paris.


Available in English and French – but also in other European languages thanks to an instant translation tool – this collaborative and interactive website aims to promote the Charter, inform on the activities of the Observatory, disseminate good practices in the field of equality between women and men in local life and facilitate exchange between signatories.


Do you represent a local/regional authority that has signed the Charter?

Are you looking for tools to develop or evaluate your action plan?

Does your local/regional authority wish to sign the Charter?

Are you interested in the Charter and looking for more information?

Do you represent a NGO and wish to promote equality at local level?

This website is for you!


This website is intended to be used as a service platform and a communication tool. An Extranet has also been created to allow signatories of the Charter to update information in their Atlas form and share files.


The Observatory website is still under construction and will further be developed in the coming weeks and months. New features will soon be available: you will be able to subscribe to the Observatory newsletter, search for best practices in the Atlas, get information on funding programs in your country, etc.


In the meantime, we invite you to send us your comments and suggestions to help us to improve the website. Moreover, if you want to share good practices, disseminate information or inform us on an event taking place in your territory, please contact us at contact@preprod.charter-equality.eu.
