With the exclusion of women from the Upper Austrian state government, the voice of over 50% of the population is missing from this important representation. However, diversity, transparency, freedom and informed citizens are the basis of a functioning democracy. This is why the Upper Austrian Women's Government decided on concrete measures for more democracy and diversity under the motto "Democracy needs freedom - needs women".

The next parallel session will take place on May 12, 2016, once again in front of the Landhaus in Linz, and is looking forward to welcoming supporters.

"As we tell[hear] stories about the lives of others, we learn how to imagine what another creature might feel in response to various events. At the same time, we identify with the other creature and learn something about ourselves."
[Martha C. Nussbaum]

Austria concluded a recruitment agreement with Turkey in 1964 and with the former Yugoslavia in 1966 in order to recruit workers. "Guest workers" came and stayed. In the 1990s, the collapse of Yugoslavia brought in numerous refugees who also stayed. Within the "foreign" resident population, the largest group (37.7 percent) comes from the countries of the former Yugoslavia. [http://www2.land-oberoesterreich.gv.at] Around 48% of these are women*.
