Ukraine: Gender equality in the cultural sector

December 21, 2021

Following a request from the the Ministry of Culture and Information Policy of Ukraine, experts from the ‘EU4Gender Equality: Reform Helpdesk’ have analysed a range of strategic documents of the Ministry from a gender perspective and provided recommendations on how to make these documents better oriented on the needs and interests of women and men in all their diversity.

In particular, gender has been mainstreamed into the concepts of ethnopolitics of Ukraine, tourism development, national film industry, folk arts and crafts, reading, and and Action Plan for the Implementation of the Strategy for Promoting the Rights and Opportunities of Persons Belonging to Roma in Ukrainian Society.

In 2022, the Reform Helpdesk is planning to organise a series of trainings on gender mainstreaming for employees of the Ministry of Culture and Information Policy of Ukraine and central executive bodies, heads of relevant departments of regional state administrations and employees of national cultural institutions.

The EU-funded EU4Gender Equality Reform Helpdesk, provides gender analysis and expert advice on gender equality to the six Eastern partner countries. The aim of the project is to increase gender equality by using gender analysis in decision-making, reforms, policies and programmes.
