The Foundation Crossing Boarders are working on methods for Equality. Our vision is of an equal society where power takes responsibility. We listen to the injustices and learn from success stories with the help of inspiration and methods create change. We work and collaborate with companies, authorities and other organizations to do bigger and faster difference. Some examples include our method Equality Effect, Without / Made Man, Twitter dress and Crossing Boarders Camp.
With equal, we mean that all people, regardless of gender shall have the same status, Rights, opportunities and responsibilities in all areas of life. However, it is important to remember that neither women, men or any other "group" is completely homogeneous. Various discriminatory power orders interact, change and enhance each other. The intersectional perspective is important, therefore, to Equality should concern all. Furthermore, not everyone who define themselves as male or female or feel at home in the gender identity of the allocated.
The struggle for Equality needs to be conducted from all sides, but the responsibility lies with those who have power. Power can be linked to factors such as resources, mandate and knowledge. Power can be both formal and informal. In equality work involves, for example, that it is the union that should take the responsibility to include all of its target audience, not the underrepresented target groups to break into. The Company's management is responsible for creating a good internal climate, not the norm breakers that will adapt to fit in.

Information & Opinion
We are changing! We work long term, methodically and anchoring but to get more speed on the social changes are also needed to dare to challenge, raise questions and stimulate debate. Through a solution focus, we want to get players with the power to take responsibility. We started including Taking movement together with Femtastic fighting against sexual violence and consent and in practice and legislation. Today, we also operate Made Man together with MFJ that challenge boys and men to take responsibility and help to solve the social problems that men's sexual violence means. We are small forces us to think innovatively. An example is Twee-Q where we offer twitterers to examine how gender equal their flow is, and thus creates debate on representation in public discourse.
Through our projects testing, develops and implements we methods Equality in areas where we see a need. Make Equal encourages young people to formulate their own equality projects with the chance to funding and mentoring. Together with Popkollo we operate Gender Co-op with the goal of music activities for children and young people should be equal and inclusive. With the Hunger Project, we create Girl platform which will result in an inclusive meeting place for all who work with girls' rights. A further example is Crossing Boarders Camp which resulted in Camp model, a method book for equal and inclusive camp.
