European Charter For Equality of Women and Men in Local Life
The Council of European Municipalities and Regions (CEMR) in 2006 launched the European Charter For Equality of Women and Men in Local Life. SALAR supported the declaration that same year and encourages its member organisations to do the same.
In February 2019, 105 municipalities and most regions in Sweden have done so, alongside 1,800 other organisations around Europe. The declaration constitutes a political commitment to giving inhabitants equal services, to encourage equal rights for workers and to work for equality for female and male politicians.
