Gender equality. A subsidiary objective of Swedish transport policy

This paper describes how the Swedish Government decided to add a sixth subsidiary transport policy objective on gender equality in the transport system in 2001 and what has happened since then. For an extended version, see www.vti/gender equality. The most important steps towards gender equality in the transport system were taken in 1998 when the government proposed that a new advisory council, the Gender Equality Council for Transport and IT should be appointed, in 2001 when the government decided to add the gender equality objective and in 2002 when the Swedish Institute for Transport and Communications Analysis was instructed by the government to produce proposals for intermediate objectives within the transport policy objective of gender equality in the transport system (A). For the covering abstract of the conference see ITRD E212343.
