Hauptschule
Seminar / Seminar
in englischer Sprache

’Women’s rights are human rights’ was a slogan in the 1990s. Gender inequality is still one of the biggest obstacles to sustainable development, economic growth and poverty reduction. Goal 5 of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) advocates equal opportunities for men and women in economic development, the elimination of all forms of violence against women and girls, the elimination of early and forced marriage, and equal participation at all levels.
