Sweden’s Gender Equality Objectives

Sweden institutionalized gender equality as a significant policy in the early 1970s under Olof Palme’s administration, and in 1994 the country’s gender equality policy adopted a clear feminist perspective.

Sweden’s goal of providing women and men with the same power to form society and their own lives was adopted with a broad political consensus in 2006, based on the new gender policy objectives (Prop. 2005/06:155).

The new gender equality policy contains six main objectives which are presented here in a condensed version. To read the full version, please refer to the website of the Government Offices of Sweden.
