Równość płci jest jednym z podstawowych elementów praw człowieka i zrównoważonego rozwoju. Artykuł badawczy ma na celu zwrócenie uwagi studium porównawczego, jak trzy istotne czynniki: polityczny, ekonomiczny i włączenie społeczne wpływają na równość i nierówność płci w Szwecji i Turcji. W dorocznym raporcie na temat równości płci z roku 2017 (ang. Global Gender Gap Report), który ocenia w skali od 0, co oznacza nierówność płci, do 1, co oznacza równość płci, Szwecję zaliczono do najwyższych pięciu procent spośród 144 krajów ocenianych pod względem równości płci, z wynikiem wynoszącym 0,816 (5 z 144), podczas gdy Turcję umieszczono w dolnej połowie z wynikiem 0,625 (131 z 144). Pomimo że na świecie istnieją regulacje prawne w politycznych, ekonomicznych i społecznych sferach odnoszących się do równości płci, ich wdrożenie jest również trudne. Celem projektu jest zrozumienie, jak ruch na rzecz równości płci ewoluował w Szwecji i Turcji z punktu widzenia zrównania poziomów.

Gender equality is one of the key elements of human rights and sustainable development. This research paper aims to address a comparative study of how the three important factors: political, economic, and social inclusion affect gender equality and inequality in Sweden and Turkey. In the 2017 Global Gender Gap Report, which assigns a number from 0 (gender inequality) to 1 (gender equality), Sweden ranks in the top five percent of the 144 countries assessed for gender equality, with a score of 0.816 (5 of 144), whereas Turkey ranks in the lower half with a score of 0.625 (131 of 144). Although there are legal regulations in the political, economic, and social areas related to gender equality in the world, implementation is also difficult. The aim of this project is to understand how the gender equality movement progressed in Sweden and Turkey to match.
