Municipalities are the level of government closest to people, and every municipality is unique. As such, there are many critical paths that can be followed to advance gender equality. It is at the local level that coherent policies and programs can be developed to address the multiple global challenges affecting all women and men. In many ways, local governments can be leaders and act as a model for gender equality and the empowerment of women to build stronger communities and a stronger world.
In response to the European Mobility Week, that took place between 16 and 22 September, Metropolis, the world association of the major metropolises, stresses the importance of adding a gender perspective to mobility challenges.
