Sweden Shuts Down Controversial Equality Body Run Exclusively by Women

The authority disparagingly dubbed "Feminism Ministry" has attracted massive criticism over its feminist slant, being led entirely by women despite its commitment to gender equality and, last but not least, controversial projects involving periods.

The Swedish Gender Equality Agency, proudly unveiled by the government in January, will close down as a result of the parliament adopting a new budget by centre-right Moderates and Christian Democrats.

"We will reduce the allocations to the agency by SEK 40 million in 2019 and grant no funds at all in 2020. This means they will be given one year to wind up the business", Moderate MP Hans Rothenberg told Swedish Radio.

Lena Ag, the Director General of the Authority, hesitated to make conclusions, yet stressed that it "has been demanded by various actors, political parties, and organisations for many years" in order to "streamline and follow up on the policy of gender equality".
