GENDER EQUALITY

Gender Equality

Gender equality is a universal principle of law recognizing the same rights for men and women to be treated with the same respect. This principle is crucial in the United Nations’ Universal Declaration of Human Rights, in which the main goal is to give legal and social equality regardless of the people’s sex.

This equality must be the basis of education, families and work, since men and women deserve to have the same rights and obligations, to be treated with respect and to have equal opportunities and conditions in every sphere of life.

Basic Principles of Gender Equality

Equality must be based on the following basic principles: 

A) Freedom, making sure that everyone can act with real freedom. 

B) Trust, eradicating inequality and embracing the change. 

C) Dialogue, attending to meetings and reaching agreements that benefit all. 

D) Solidarity, being responsible for the future.
