"People with secure social insurance and pensions are able to make their own decisions in life. Sickness insurance should strike a balance between protection and demands, and pensions should be fair and enough to live on. As a minister in Sweden’s first feminist government, the differences in the conditions for men and women are a natural starting point in my reform efforts."
