The Swedish LL is in the southern region of Jönköping. While gender equality is advanced in Sweden, this region is close to the bottom of Sweden’s gender equality list. It has few women who own farms, gender segregation in the labour market, and a high gender pay gap. The situation of women and men in forestry is more equal. The region is seen as a role model of innovation and entrepreneurial spirit. This LL will look at the specific needs of women innovators in farming, forestry, and rural areas, in a region high in innovation, but with low rates for women.
