Grassroots male advocates for equality of women and men
We present a plan to make 20 men representing municipalities more sensitive and active, which is an example of the release of the first stone in the dam. An unjust system only works if everyone respects and maintains it. In addition, we will make specific changes in the municipalities. This in itself is a significant change with a strong inspiration potential that we will use in the advocacy campaign aimed at national policies, we will get 10 men, ambassadors, who will be equality advocates at the highest level in the future.
