As noted by Vilma Scarpino, President, WIN International, “Reaching equal opportunities and rights for men and women, as well as reducing the level of violence experienced, is an effort that needs to be encouraged by many different actors within society, men and women together, and in different environments, as the WIN World Survey shows. Gender equality at home does not imply that the same equality has been achieved at work or in politics, not even in the same country. This points towards the need to involve as many actors as possible in promoting and encouraging equality. And it is not only about involving different actors, but it is also about acting on different levels too: gender equality is an international goal that needs to be faced also from a local and a national level, as shown by differences and slight improvements in some countries when it comes violence experienced.”
