Training gender equality at the local level

“Gender equality at the local level” trainings were successfully implemented in municipalities of Bratunac, Srebrenica, Lukavac and Kalesija during November 2013. Activities were conducted in the frame of the Project “Integration of the Principles of Gender Equality in the local Community” implemented by “Forum žena” Bratunac in partnership with Association “HO HORIZONTI” Tuzla and with the support of UN Women. Two workshops were implemented within the training: “Gender mechanisms and standards in BiH – implementation at the local level – Analysis of the Gender Equality Commissions and cooperation with local parliamentarians, citizens in the local communities and NGOs” and “Production of the operational work plan for local Gender Commission for the period January-December 2014”. Participants of the training, members of Gender Equality Commission in municipal councils, representatives of local communities and NGOs were introduced with the basic terminology and concepts related to gender equality, as well as the principles and aspects of the gender perspective in the various documents they encounter with on a daily basis. Furthermore in working groups, participants discussed issues of gender equality at the local level and analyzed the Law on Gender Equality at the local level, through five areas – the combat against domestic violence, women’s education, women’s health, greater participation of women in political life and economic empowerment of women.
