“Gender inequality persists worldwide, depriving women and girls of their basic rights and opportunities. Achieving gender equality and the empowerment of women and girls will require more vigorous efforts, including legal frameworks, to counter deeply rooted gender-based discrimination that often results from patriarchal attitudes and related social norms.” (United Nations, Progress of SDG #5 in 2017)
According to the WEF Global gender gap report 2017, Switzerland fell from 11th to 21st place in the world rank in only one year. This workshop was a call to the civil society to identify and implement concrete solutions and take part in the “vigorous efforts” for a more equal Switzerland.
