Describe the main features of the policy/measure: 

The ministry of culture seeks to promote gender equality in the production of arts on content on one hand and in having access to this creative content on the other hand. This includes two key pillars from the Ministry's pillars of action:
-The first pillar is related to the concept of cultural equality and is one of the seven projects in the ministry's action play. It should be noted that the concept of cultural equality from a broader perspective includes the just production, distribution and reception or access to cultural and creative goods or services between major cities on the one hand and rural or isolated areas or areas that are distant from the capital on the other. It also includes the just distribution between the two genders in terms of content production and access to various cultural services.
