Le disparità di genere costituiscono uno dei maggiori ostacoli allo sviluppo sostenibile, alla crescita economica e alla lotta contro la povertà. Obiettivo della DSC è permettere sia alle donne che agli uomini di beneficiare degli stessi diritti per poter sviluppare il loro potenziale e valorizzare le loro risorse.

La povertà è ancor oggi marcata da un forte squilibrio tra i sessi: secondo studi internazionali, il 70 per cento circa delle persone che vivono in condizioni di estrema povertà sono donne. Leggi e norme sociali sfavoriscono spesso le ragazze e le donne, precludono loro l’accesso alla sanità e all’istruzione, alle posizioni decisionali, alle risorse finanziarie e al mercato.

Le donne lavorano spesso in condizioni precarie, in settori poco produttivi e senza alcuna protezione sociale, guadagnando meno degli uomini. Le donne hanno inoltre meno voce in capitolo degli uomini nei processi decisionali su questioni sociali, politiche ed economiche e non di rado sono vittime di violenza di genere, discriminazione ed esclusione.

La DSC si impegna in favore della parità di diritti e delle pari opportunità tra donne e uomini coinvolgendo uomini adulti e giovani nelle sue attività incentrate sulle questioni di genere e rappresenta i loro interessi trasversalmente, vale a dire in tutti i suoi progetti e le sue strategie. Conflitti, contesti fragili, economia e politica sono aree tematiche prioritarie.

Con la «strategia del DFAE per l’uguaglianza di genere e i diritti delle donne», adottata nel 2017, l’uguaglianza tra donne e uomini è diventata un pilastro principale della politica estera della Svizzera. Il messaggio concernente la cooperazione internazionale della Svizzera 2017-2020 mira per la prima volta esplicitamente a rafforzare l’uguaglianza tra i sessi e i diritti delle donne e delle ragazze. La Svizzera s’impegna anche ad attuare l’Agenda 2030 per uno sviluppo sostenibile dell’ONU, il cui obiettivo 5 è di raggiungere l’uguaglianza di genere e l’autodeterminazione di tutte le donne e ragazze. È firmataria della Convenzione dell’ONU sull’eliminazione di ogni forma di discriminazione nei confronti della donna (CEDAW) del 1979. L’uguaglianza tra uomini e donne è sancita nell’articolo 8 capoverso 3 della Costituzione federale del 1999.

Ugualianza e diritti delle donne in situazioni di conflitto e in contesti fragili

La DSC attua la Risoluzione 1325 del Consiglio di sicurezza delle Nazioni Unite incentrata sui temi della prevenzione e della protezione dalla violenza di genere in situazioni di conflitto e della partecipazione delle donne ai processi di pace.

Rafforzamento della partecipazione delle donne alla vita politica

La DSC si impegna affinché donne e uomini possano onorare con pari diritti i loro doveri di cittadine e cittadini.

Accesso alle risorse naturali, all’istruzione e a fonti di reddito

Le donne svolgono un ruolo chiave nella lotta contro la povertà e nella promozione della sicurezza alimentare. È dunque fondamentale garantire loro l’accesso alle risorse naturali, all’istruzione e a fonti di reddito.
