In recent years it has become more common to talk about gender equality in public organisations as part of the ambition to modernise the public sector in general. The purpose of the integration of a gender perspective is believed to create a better service for citizens. Also, in the Programme for Gender Mainstreaming, an outspoken ambition has been to "guarantee the quality of publicly financed activities" in order to ensure that the work "meets the conditions ofboth sexes and that high quality and good results are achieved for women, men, girls and boys" (application for fonds to support the gender mainstreaming oflocal authority activities, SALAR and government decision IJ2007/3277/JÄM).
