Celebrating 100 years of women's suffrage
"Parity must be our objective"
The Chancellor has praised the introduction of women’s suffrage in Germany as an important "fight for what is a human right". In spite of all the progress that has been made towards achieving equality, she said, there is still a lot to do. "Quotas were important, but parity must be our objective," declared Angela Merkel at the official celebrations in Berlin, which she hosted jointly with Franziska Giffey, Federal Minister for Women.
