 In 1978, Norway adopted the Gender Equality Act to guarantee that women and men are given equal opportunities in education, employment and cultural and professional advancement.[1] The Act was amended in 2005 to align it with other acts dealing with discrimination based on religion and ethnicity, disability and sexual orientation.[2] As of 1 January 2014 the Gender Equality Act No. 45 was replaced by a new Act (LOV-2013-06-21-59). Norway’s national gender equality policy is managed by the Ministry of Children, Equality and Social Inclusion. In November 2011, Norway launched "Likestilling 2014", an action plan for gender equality including 86 new initiatives that fall under the responsibility of a cross section of Ministries.[3]
