Gender at hbs
Gender democracy is an overarching goal of our work and a cross-cutting theme for all activities of the Heinrich Böll Foundation. This concept addresses the deep-rooted structural, societal, and cultural causes of the persisting inequalities between men, women, and gender minorities. We integrate considerations of gender equality into all of our programs, building awareness in international political processes, institutions and networks and offering perspectives for gender-responsive policy and financing approaches.

Heinrich Böll is one of the most important and best-known writers of the Federal Republic of Germany. "Bound by the times and my contemporaries, to what my generation has lived through, experienced, seen, and heard," as he himself wrote, he was the critical chronicler of Germany’s history at mid-century.
