Sweden’s new Gender Equality Authority will officially be based in Gothenburg on Sweden's west coast.

Minister of Gender Equality Åsa Regnér (S) announced the decision on Thursday at a press conference in a Gothenburg nursing home. 

“The Equality Authority will reinforce much of the good work already being done in Sweden,” she said.

The Equality Authority will work with the government and other agencies to address gender inequality through monitoring, analyzing, and coordinating gender policy. It will be a mid-sized agency with between 75-90 employees. The agency should be established next year and is set to start operations in 2018.
