Gender equality

Gender plays an important role in young people's lives, and on their participation in political, social, and economic life, due to gender roles and stereotypes.

It is a transversal issue in youth policy, meaning that it cuts across all other domains of youth policy, such as health, education, and employment. The Youth Partnership examines the participation of young women in the political domain, the challenges that prevent them from accessing opportunities equally and the disproportionate impact of the crises on young women’s autonomy.
