Govt. Bill 1993/94:147, Jämställdhetspolitiken: Delad makt – delat ansvar
Gender Equality Policy: Shared Power—Shared Responsibility
Gender mainstreaming has been the strategy of choice for the
Swedish Government and Riksdag since 1994. It was first set out in
the bill. In this bill Ithe government recommended also creating gender equality officers attached to the county administrative boards with tasks similar to the Gender Equality Division in the Government office’s (Prop. 1993/ 94:147). Since 1995 experts on gender equality issues have been attached to each county administrative board. The experts support the board in its mandate to promote gender equality measures such as initiating projects, improving the knowledge base, and supporting and following up the various initiatives. The expert supports the different sections of the organisation in their gender mainstreaming efforts. The bill also underlined a dual strategy, that mainstreaming should be complemented by specific measures.
