Gender Equality

Equality is the fundamental principle that all human beings have the same rights and the same obligations.

In the context of the continuum of resources and services, gender equality means, firstly, that all human beings are free to develop their own abilities and make their choices.

Equality also means that the different behaviors, aspirations and needs of women and men are considered, valued and promoted equally.

It also means ensuring equal opportunities between men and women, particularly with regard to access to social and economic resources. For example: access to housing, food, transportation, training, employment, training, pay and a balance between personal, work and family life.
