Living in Equality

Matosinhos was one of the municipalities distinguished with the award presented by the Commission for Citizenship and Gender Equality (CIG)

Matosinhos is one of the best places to live in equality. Who says so is the Commission for Gender Equality (CIG), which awarded the prize to the municipality.

This award is a biennial initiative, within the scope of the National Strategy for Equality and Non-Discrimination (ENIND) - Portugal + Equal - specifically inscribed in the three National Action Plans that define strategic and specific objectives for equality between women and men (IMH), prevention and combat of violence against women and domestic violence (VMVD) and combat of discrimination on the grounds of sexual orientation, gender identity and sexual characteristics (OIC).

The Award is intended to distinguish Municipalities with good practices in the integration of the Gender Equality, Citizenship and Non-Discrimination dimension, either in their organisation or operation, or in the activities they develop.
