The GRIP-project

The Danish Political Gender Equality Regime – Continuity and change

Short description of the project

The aim of the project is to provide a systematic, in-depth characterisation of the Danish political gender equality regime, and to identify key actors, dynamics and discourses that have been critical for the development of women’s representation, and for the policy development within three selected key equality policy areas: equal pay, parental leave, and anti-discrimination legislation. This project represents a new approach by identifying and analysing in depth landmark formative moments in the history. The focus in time is the development since the woman’s right to vote, however with special emphasis on the period after World War 2.
