Deliverable: Gender and cultural heritage: the perspective of six Mediterranean countries
This publication provides an overview of the status of gender equality and its connection to the cultural heritage sector in the Mediterranean. The aim of the publication is to evaluate the importance of gender equality as a means to generate further social and economic development within the region. Building a better future for all requires the full and equal participation of women and men in both the cultural and tourism sectors. In order to achieve this, Mediterranean societies must perceive women and girls as agents of change within their communities and in turn do their utmost to achieve better standards of living.
