Gender equality
Latvia has decided to use the integrated approach to solve the problems related to gender equality, that means the principles of gender equality must be taken into consideration while solving the issues and forming a policy in any field of politics and at all levels, especially when the influence is anticipated directly upon society. One has to remember that even then, if the legislation guarantees equal rights to everyone, not always both the genders have equal conditions, because quite often the available resources and possibilities of men and women may differ. Analysing the situation in Latvia, the above mentioned is confirmed - although the rights of men and women are equal in the legislation, however, in particular spheres of life there use to be essentially different situations for men and women.
