Church Gender Equality Flaws

The Lutheran Church of Sweden has been criticised for weaknesses in its gender equality.

A study from the Ombudsman for Gender Equality says the former state church fails to satisfy legal requirements.

Only one diocese, Linköping, is in full compliance with the law.

Among the problems are equal salaries for men and women, as well as programs to prevent sexual harassment.
