It’s time that all of us see gender as a spectrum as an alternative of two units of opposing beliefs.” – Emma Watson

Let’s close gender gaps in all spheres and dimensions-Social, Cultural, Political, Economic Education, Workforce, Promotion & Position, Leadership, Pay & Wages, Division of Labour, Health, Domestic Responsibilities, Safety & Security- create equal opportunities everywhere.

#GenderEquality is key to accelerate sustainable development in a progressive society. Having a balanced view always yields greater results- be it home, society, or workplace which comes from having perspectives from male and female leaders to ensure that men and women have an equal chance to contribute both at home and in the workplace, thereby enhancing their well-being and that of society.

A beautiful landlocked Balkan country Republic of North Macedonia since its independence has kept equal opportunity for both men and women at the forefront of the government
agenda the country has adopted several laws and mechanisms to advance gender equality the law of equal opportunity for men and women oblige public institutions to ensure
equal rights and opportunities for both genders so according to UN reports the Republic of Macedonia showed that only 12 percent of women in rural areas are landowners and less than 10 percent have decision-making roles related to land. While women in agriculture work on average 11.06 hours per day, 41.7% of the total workload belongs to unpaid work (Source: https://eca.unwomen.org/pt/news/stories/2019/02/making-agriculture-and-rural-development-policies-respond-to-womens-needs-in-fyr-macedonia). so there’s a huge difference joined us a wonderful woman from North Macedonia.

Gender inequality has been prevalent in society for ages. Gender biases are profoundly embedded in us and consciously or subconsciously, we start holding attitudes or stereotypes towards men and women most of the time. Cyprus has adopted several national action plans to address domestic (‘family’) violence, human trafficking, poverty, and social exclusion. In Cyprus, the promotion of gender equality through policy and legislation is a relatively recent phenomenon, according to the European Institute of gender equality- One of the most fundamental developments in #Cyprus is gender mainstreaming in peace and security. To know more about Cypriot women and the progress that happened on gender equality front, #WahWoman, invited a well-known guest from Cyprus Magda Zenon, a gender activist. Watch her Interview.
