WO-MEN: Gender Equality Creates Democracy

This Grundtvig project brings together nine partners from seven countries – Lithuania, Austria, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Finland, Romania and the UK. It aims to promote European values regarding gender equality and democracy. The main activities aim to stimulate the demand for training in this field and to develop partnerships between civil society organisations and policy-makers at all levels. The project carried out a comparative analysis of the situation in the seven partner countries. It also produced a guide to good practice for implementing innovative ways of promoting gender equality. The project also conducted a survey on the quantitative and qualitative indicators associated with gender (in)equality. An analysis of the training needs of decisionmakers, leaders of NGOs and adult education institutions was also carried out. This formed the basis of the creation of a training curriculum available on CD ROM which was tested during an international training seminar. The results of the project were presented at an international meeting in 2004 and a final conference in 2006.
