Cities and municipalities that actively want to promote gender equality can benefit considerably when getting involved at international level such as with the FemCities network. Having a close look at international and EU law, directives, agreements and resolutions concerning non-discrimination and advancement of women are important factors to work towards gender equality, because EU and international legislation also has an influence on the people living in cities and municipalities. And this may help to promote gender equality issues in each city and municipality. Below please find references to useful international documents that have an influence on equality issues in cities.
