Where is the German policy in terms of equality? Many of the problems are since decades the same. However, there are also examples of positive change - not least from the Union.
If 30 years ago someone would have predicted that Elisabeth Motschmann fights once in the Bundestag for more women in Leadership positions, you would have declared him crazy. At the beginning of the 1990s, the CDU-wife published a book, the women's recommends to stay at home and concentrate fully on their mother role. Later, Motschmann self-made political career: first in Bremen, in 2013, she moved for the Bremen CDU in the Bundestag.
shows you the way, that even in the conservative camp for a rethink. In the Bundestag motschmann was not in the family Committee, into Social, you went to the Committee for foreign policy. Because:
"the Crucial thing is: Who makes the announcements, who explains the world, or the world's crises? And then it's always the men."
This has to change finally says Motschmann, and wants to encourage women to break male dominance. Especially in foreign policy was to do very much, says Kristina Lunz from the centre for feminist foreign policy. Only 13 percent of all German embassies around the world are headed by women.
