Gender Justice

We are convinced that without gender equality, there can be no social justice and no strong, vibrant democracy. This is why we work to put an end to discrimination and to achieve true equality. We are committed to gender justice – in every aspect of life. Because only democracy that establishes real equality between the sexes is true Social Democracy.

The FES supports and empowers its staff in the technical and substantive implementation of gender mainstreaming by designing gender-equitable processes and setting structures via a central gender coordination unit and gender coordinators in the work units (including divisions, departments, regional offices, and national offices). Gender mainstreaming is supported by further training, but also as part and parcel of quality management, and by means of monitoring and evaluation.

Through our work, we would like to contribute to the surmounting of gender-related disadvantages. We convey a modern gender image enshrining equality in our programmes and formats. In our gender equality work, we adopt an intersectional perspective, i.e. we consider the interaction of gender with other social categories such as ethnicity, religion, social position, economic inequality, disability, and sexual orientation.

The Friedrich Ebert Foundation also carries out gender policy: on the one hand in the respective areas of domestic and international work, and on the other hand across the foundation.
