06.06.2018 / Created by (EMWF)

Supported by the German government’s Commissioner for Culture and Media, this study presents a comparative view of the situation of women in the fields of the arts and culture and the media in selected European countries (France, Italy, the Netherlands, Poland, Sweden, and the United Kingdom). The purpose is to compare the German case to the experiences and policies of the other European countries and provide input for potential future action in five areas:

  • Advancement to leadership positions in arts, cultural and media institutions;
  • Access and opportunities to jobs, career patterns and award systems;
  • Pay and pension harmonization;
  • Reconciliation of work and family life for self-employed workers and employees; and
  • Monitoring tools and evaluation schemes for achieving greater gender equity
