Germany: Day of Action against Gender Discrimination

Gleiches Recht. Jedes Geschlecht. (Equal Rights. Every Gender)

As part of their‘Year against Gender Discrimination’ the Federal Anti-Discrimination Agency (FADA) organized the Day of Action on 16 September 2015 in Berlin to raise awareness for gender discrimination. 20 national organizations which actively work for the equal treatment of all gender took part in this event – among them were trade unions, LGBTIQ-organizations and women’s associations. The motto of the year “Equal Rights. Every Gender” was also the theme of the day. Some nationwide well-known personalities accepted the invitation to be part of the Day of Action against gender discrimination, including the former mayor of Berlin, Klaus Wowereit, the former president of the German Bundestag Rita Süssmuth, the entrepreneur Bea Knecht, the musician Sookee and the international artist Ennio Marchetto.

Parts of the official programme were a discussion between prominent guests about the steps to equal treatment of all gender, musical acts and a theater performance. Key topics were the gender pay gap, sexual harassment and the rights of inter* and trans* gender people. The guests of the Day of Action were able to gather information and engage in talks with the above mentioned national organizations. These were present with booths in a ‘market of ideas’ around the main stage. The exchange between the organizations and the public visitors was an essential part of the event.

Discrimination Survey in Germany 2015

umfrage_ads_titelbild_fb.jpg

The Federal Anti-Discrimination Agency (FADA) in Germany launched a survey between 1 September and 30 November 2015 in order to find out more about discrimination behaviour in Germany. FADA would like to know which discrimination grounds and in which areas people in Germany are experiencing discrimination. Furthermore the survey asks how people are affected by discrimination and how they cope with it.

The results of this survey will provide FADA with quantitative and qualitative data regarding discrimination in Germany. Over 18.000 persons participated in the online and paper version of the survey.

The first results are available here. The full analysis of the data will be published in 2017.

Based on the results of the survey, FADA will draw up recommendations to prevent future discrimination.

Background

Systematic data on discrimination concerning all discrimination grounds are missing in Germany. The FADA is therefore working on establishing a Discrimination Barometer. The survey is the first step towards establishing such a Barometer. Central results of the survey will be published in the next report of FADA to the German Bundestag (2017).
