Office for the Equality of Men and Women

What we do

Since 1981, equality of women and men is firmly anchored in the Federal Constitution. However, this equality has not been completely realised yet in the Canton of Zurich until today. This has some negative effects for society and the economy.

This is the reason why there is an Office for the Equality of Men and Women in the Canton of Zurich. As a government institution, its mandate is to promote the equality of men and women in all areas of life.

The Office is the Center of Excellence for the equality of men and women and the first contact point in this respect in the Canton of Zurich. It acts on behalf of the general public as well as for the administration of the Canton of Zurich.
