Partner Cities

"Sister Cities Going Gender" works in cooperation with six European cities and partners: Frankfurt (Germany), Rome (Italy), Rotterdam (Netherlands), Turin (Italy), Venice (Italy), Verein Autonome Österreichische Frauenhäuser, AÖF, Vienna (Austria). Additional cities, especially from northern Europe (Sweden, Finland) are going to be recruited for a transfer during the project. In order to establish a European Competence Center, the participation of further cities with more experience in Gender Mainstreaming is planned. These cities can transfer their results with regard to an equal participation of both genders in decision-making structures into the transnational context of "Sister Cities Going Gender". In order to optimize the effectiveness and the European increase in value, a partnership was established with the project " Equality in European Towns" of Council of European Municipalities (CEMR).
