The progress of gender equality and equality between women themselves may vary according to, among other things, the region where they live, their socio-economic situation, their age, their ethnic origin, their cultural background and whether they have disabilities.
The government is developing various strategies and action plans in order to maintain and support the progress of gender equality. Various tools, including statistical portraits, stem from these strategies and action plans. These portraits are intended to integrate the principles of equality into the decision-making process in an effort to achieve gender equality.

Each region has particular characteristics that lead to different challenges with regard to gender equality. The portraits are available in French only.

Portraits of gender equality representing various population groups
