This entry provides an overview of gender equity policies in Austria, Germany and Switzerland, including their shared need for such policies, and then explores the importance of women’s studies, the promotion of women, and gender mainstreaming to strengthen gender equality. Then the entry examines the paradox that exists in higher education in the 21st century: while gender equity policies have been successfully implemented, the dominant culture in academia remains unchanged.
