Perspective and action plan 2008
Perspective and action plan 2008 - guidelines for Danish gender equality policy.
Perspektiv- og handleplan 2008
Each year, the guidelines for Danish gender equality policy are presented to the Danish Parliament in the Minister for Gender Equality’s Report on the past year and the action plan for the coming year. In 2008 the national action plan on gender equality (prepared by Karen Jespersen) among other things focused on labour market participation and reconciliation. The sharing of parental leave is discussed in particular and it is concluded that women take the absolute main part. The reconciliation between work and family life is also discussed with reference to statistics demonstrating the gender gap of time use in domestic work.
