Abstract equality of men and women

Equal Opportunities Office | Women's Office

Dear Oberurselerinnen, dear Oberurseler,


Despite the positive changes, achievements and successes that we take for granted today, the office of the women's representative is necessary. Because still ...

  • many committees and offices that determine our lives are only a male "group picture with lady"
  • women do not have the same professional earnings and promotion opportunities as men
  • women perform the majority of unpaid hours
  • their current pension entitlement is less than half the average male pension
  • women are affected by psychological and physical violence because of their gender.  

So we still have a long way to go before we reach our goal...

  • to reduce the existing discrimination of women in our society and
  • to make gender equality a reality in the 21st century...  

"Women and men are equal."
The state promotes the actual implementation of equal rights for women and men and works to eliminate existing disadvantages.

(Article 3 Paragraph 2 of the German Basic Law)

The constitutional requirement of equal rights for men and women forms the legal basis for the work of the women's representative in Oberursel.

  • The women's representative...

    • is involved and exerts influence at various political levels for the interests of women and girls 
    • wants to strengthen and expand general conditions, organisations and cooperation by and for women 
    • sees herself as an initiator and coordinator within the women's political infrastructure in Oberursel 
    • takes a gender-specific critical look at Oberursel.
  • The external tasks and target areas are ...

    • Public relations and sensitization work for women's political issues 
    • Contact point for complaints, questions and suggestions regarding discrimination against women 
    • Placement of women and girls seeking help at specialised counselling centres 
    • Maintaining contacts with associations and women's initiatives, advice centres etc. 
    • Promotion and organisation of events 
    • submitting comments on development plans as a responsible body for public interests
