Key objectives of the measure:

The Federal Ministry of Culture and Sports pays special attention to the gender equality through the funded projects. For this Ministry, women and men shall enjoy the same rights and opportunites across all sectors of society, including culture. The different behaviours, aspirations and needs of women and men are equally valued and favoured by the Ministry. One of the Ministry’s criteria for selection of the funed projects is “Contribution of nominated projects in creating equal rights, opportunities and participation in the field of culture, regardless of gender”. Indeed, ensuring that the spiritual, intellectual and creative expressions and interests of all members of the community are reflected has proven to be an important enabler of inclusive development and socio-economic empowerment. Yet, access to culture can often be restricted to certain social groups, with women and girls in particular facing complex barriers to participate in the cultural life of their communities. Therefore, recognizing these challenges, i.e. unequal opportunities for women, the Federal Ministry of Culture and Sports has been ensuring that women’s and men’s roles in cultural life are equally encouraged, valued and visible.
