Objective of the Project

The project’s goal is to improve the enforcement of equal opportunities for women and men on the institutional level, at the labor market, in the family and in the society.

We want to achieve this as follows:

- we will enforce at least two legislative measures, which will lead to the elimination of deficits concerning equal opportunities, we will proceed from the analyses of equal opportunities and monitoring of the Czech government and Parliament activities - we will create a chamber of gender experts, which will serve as an independent platform for the cooperation with the Czech executive and will provide an expert base for the subject of equal opportunities

- we will enforce a ratification of at least one international agreement in the field of equal opportunities and women’s rights, which the Czech Republic is required to ratify but has not yet done so

- we will promote at least one legislative measure which will lead to true respect of women’s reproduction rights and to the legislative provision of the birth attendant profession

- we will improve the awareness of parents, birth attendants and doctors through information campaigns, conferences and manuals
