In 2014 Vienna’s first gender equality monitor was set up. This measured the level of gender equality in twelve topic-areas in Vienna. It became clear that a lot has been achieved over the previous decade. However, women are still disadvantaged in many sectors. Discussion forums on the topic of “Gender Equality” are carried out under the direction of the Women’s Department from Vienna’s local government organisation and aim to give women from Vienna the opportunity to enter into a dialogue on gender equality.
