Gender equality means equal rights, obligations, responsibilities, and opportunities of women and men and girls and boys.
Hand in Hand for Women is an association fighting for women’s rights and gender equality.
Gender Equality constitutes the fundamental value of our association.
To work for increasing gender equality is to work for all people to be able to shape their lives as individuals, without perceptions of gender limiting us.
Our projects, reports, and actions aim to ensure equality for all women with a specific focus on immigrant women. We encourage immigrant women to fully integrate and enable them to stand on their own feet and ease their integration into the Swedish Society.
The online projects that we organised during the coronavirus pandemic to support immigrant women’s socio-cultural integration are:
Svenska Konversation – Digital Fika is a social project initiated in partnership with ABF. The project aims to ensure that women do not lose their activities in socio-psychological terms. We encourage women to actively use the Swedish language during the pandemic days when social life is limited.
BokCirkel is an on-line book club where we provide an opportunity to read books and self-improvement of immigrants.
Digital Samtal is the project on series of informative seminars for immigrant women. Hand in Hand for Women collaborates with distinguished organizations including The Swedish Women´s Lobby, ABF, RIFFI Migrant Women and Jobbtorget for the full integration of immigrant women and prevent the inequalities for this project.
For the economic integration of the newcomer immigrant women, in the third Digital Samtal, we cooperate with Jobtorget to organize an informational online conference about working life and education in Sweden.
To sum up, the aim of the establishment and projects of the Hand in Hand for Women are to encourage women to integrate from the social, cultural, and economic perspective, also prevent the inequality that could be a result of language, ethnicity, and gender.
