The project addresses the persistent gender inequality in all walks of public and private life in the country, particularly on the local self-government level. Through the creation of a Gender Equality Index of the municipalities, which is a composite indicator of the status of women and men in different spheres of living, the availability of public services that are relevant to achieving gender equality and the municipal efforts to promote gender-responsive policies, the project provides an overall overview of the situation in all municipalities in the Republic of Macedonia. The Gender Equality Index covers 81 municipalities and analyzes them in three main areas: gender gap, enabling conditions and gender responsive municipality. Based on the results, a toolkit for the municipalities provides assistance to practices in gender equality.
