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.
