The present master thesis ?Feminist Electoral Touchstones for the City of Graz and the Province of Styria? first gives an overview about the development of feminist politics and the women's movement in Austria and introduces those organisations which put together electoral touchstones for the election to Landtag in 2010 in Styria under the name "Ladies' invitation". The aim of this thesis is to formulate political demands which are reasonable in terms of feminist politics, which are internationally supported and self-explanatory for the upcoming elections in Graz and Styria. These demands are meant to support the equal treatment of women intersectorally and at all political levels. Furthermore, they will enable a political realization with the aid of BürgerInnengesellschaft, NGOs and the political parties. To achieve this aim, existing women's-political demands and rights were investigated in national and international sources, were summarised and systematised after logical connections. Therfore, I act on a rights-based approach. Internationally agreed political objectives, as for example the UN Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women (CEDAW), political objectives of the Council of Europe and the EU and other feminist electoral touchstones from the European area were searched for women's-political demands and women's rights. Finally, higher aims were formulated to serve as electoral criteria and, if possible, substantiated with rights in terms of a rights-based approach. Conclusively, recommendations were assigned to match each aim for the province and the city. The formulation of higher objectives allows a monitoring of electoral parties, for it is possible to check whether and to what extent these aims occur in the electioneering programmes.
