National Action Plan on Gender Equality in the Labour Market
The National Action Plan (NAP) on Gender Equality in the Labour Market was developed to eliminate the disadvantages women are still facing and to foster strategic and coordinated implementation of various initiatives and policies. The NAP was published in 2010 and covered the period from 2010 to 2013.
It is important to break down barriers that restrict women from re-entering the job market and taking up full-time positions. Awareness raising for the consequence of part-time work on retirement benefits is also necessary. Reconciling work and family life is by no means a challenge for women only, but the discourse on work-life-balance needs to focus on increased engagement of men and fathers. Public awareness for these topics was raised by the campaign on paternal leave “Real men take parental leave”.
