The world is becoming a place where development cannot exist without gender equality. Gender equality is required in many aspects of life.
The Center explores the potential for change, examining the importance of gender equality, especially in the fields of work and the family.

Both women and men are no exception to the ongoing efforts towards building a world free from discrimination. Through the understanding of gender, we aim for a society that distinguishes, discriminates, and does not suppress relationships between people. From family relationships, to ordinary daily activities; while at work, when visiting people at the hospital, to even using social media, many efforts across different areas of life are being made to achieve gender equality. The Center intends to trace historical traces to examine the current situation, and to envision changes for the future.
