What caused the decline of Austria's Green Party?

Julia Sahlender recommended by Julia Sahlender Der Standard, Austria
Austria's Green Party has lost its way. Even its members have said so. If the Green Party wants to make its way back into Austrian parliament they will have to put in a lot of work.

Same sex marriage back on the table in Austria

Same sex marriage back on the table in Austria

Julia Sahlender recommended by Julia Sahlender Der Standard, Austria
Broad approval within the population makes it hard to understand why gay marriage isn't already legal. But so far it's always been stopped by the ÖVP and the FPÖ, the two parties which are most likely going to form the next government.

Will Austria clean up dirty campaigns?

Will Austria clean up dirty campaigns?

Julia Sahlender recommended by Julia Sahlender Der Standard, Austria
One of Austria's main parties has called to make "dirty campaigning" a criminal offense. While it seems reasonable to keep such practices to a minimum ... some see it as a threat to freedom of information and opinion.

Julia Sahlender recommended by Julia Sahlender Der Standard, Austria

Austria asleep on the gender job

Austria asleep on the gender job

Julia Sahlender recommended by Julia Sahlender Der Standard, Austria
Austria was 19th on the equality scale in 2013. In 2016, was in 52nd place. To change point the country towards progress again, a political scientist has drawn a roadmap.

In a state as affluent as Austria, there is no need for people to live on as little as 220 Euros a month.

New law regulates how much face Muslim women must show

Julia Sahlender recommended by Julia Sahlender Der Standard, Austria
How is telling someone to wear less or different clothing any better than telling them to wear more?

25 million unsafe abortions last year

25 million unsafe abortions last year

Julia Sahlender recommended by Julia Sahlender Der Standard, Austria
Gentle reminder from WHO: Dear world, banning abortion does not actually reduce the number abortions performed. It only makes the procedure less safe for the women.

Something more needs to be done about domestic violence in Austria!

Julia Sahlender recommended by Julia Sahlender Der Standard, Austria
It saddens me every time I read about another case of severe domestic abuse or violence and it angers me when I learn that it was not the first time and that it probably could have been prevented.

Want to make your racism look less scary? Give it a pretty face

Want to make your racism look less scary? Give it a pretty face

Julia Sahlender recommended by Julia Sahlender Der Standard, Austria
I find it very irritating that some people’s sexism appears to be so deeply rooted that they will find racism and bigotry less dangerous or intimidating just because it is being spread by a young woman with blonde hair.

Male politicians get twice the airtime of their women counterparts in Austria

Male politicians get twice the airtime of their women counterparts in Austria

Julia Sahlender recommended by Julia Sahlender Der Standard, Austria
I believe that a country's government should be representative of its people. Last time, I checked, women and girls made up about 51% of the Austrian population. Not less than a third.
