About the Project
Equal for Equal aims to raise the awareness of gender inequality and promote the equality of all genders by making invisible stories visible. It provides an insight into the different social and political realities of women. It creates an international community and a sense of connection between women from different social, ethnic, cultural and religious backgrounds. Equal for Equal encourages women to become involved in political discussions about gender equality and to stand up for their rights. Cultural Innovators Network is a project of the Goethe-Institut as part of the German-Egyptian and German-Tunisian Transformation Partnership and is financed by the German Federal Foreign Office.
How can we find out more about the different kinds of gender inequality in Albania, Croatia, Germany, Italy, Libya, Tunisia or Turkey? How can we gather and make sense of disparate information from different cultures in a way that is meaningful to everyone? It is not only the more obvious stories that show how a society deals with gender equality; it is also ordinary aspects of daily life which can teach us about the state of women’s rights.
