NPA’s vision is solidarity in action and NPA stands for equal rights for all, irrespective of sex, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, disability, and social status. NPA’s principles establish that we will promote human rights, equality, and a just distribution of power and resources between all individuals, including women and men. Given the increasing concentration of power and resources in the hands of a few, NPA considers that strong popular participation and organisation are crucial to change power relations. Women’s influence and organisation must increase to participate on equal terms with men, while men’s participation in gender equality efforts needs to increase in order to realise these goals. NPA establishes partnerships with organisations that share our values, including gender equality goals.

This policy lays out NPA’s commitments to strive for a world free from discrimination based on gender, and where every human being can fulfil their potential unhindered by discriminating laws, economic and social structures. The policy sets out NPA’s commitments and principles for our gender equality work. The policy applies to NPA’s international work; all programmes, our policy, advocacy and communication work, and not least within NPA.
