Equality is modern, on everyone’s lips and can easily be implemented in some areas. Chancellor-designate Olaf Scholz knows this too, and has now proudly announced that his future cabinet will be made up of women and men alike. The social democrat is thus differentiated from the AfD, which considers all quotas to be the devil’s stuff, and from the CDU, which for obvious reasons was not a particularly attractive party for women even under Angela Merkel’s rule. Thus, the actions of Scholz and his partners are definitely to be welcomed. However, it is not foreseeable that the future coalition of the SPD, Greens and FDP will not only care about women who are striving for a political career, but also those who are far worse off. The “traffic light” barely keeps an eye on their everyday worries.

It is often women who suffer from excessive rents and low social benefits. On the one hand, improvements in these areas would only be possible through strong interventions in the free market, which is sacred to the FDP in particular, but also to some politicians from the SPD and the Greens. The parties also agree that people who have been out of work for a long time should continue to be in such poor financial condition that they are pressured into taking poorly paid jobs. The increase in the minimum wage to twelve euros promised by the coalition is unlikely to change anything if the cost of living continues to rise. Government partners have often spoken of the fact that their alliance will serve progress. For the SPD, this was for a long time connected with the promise to ensure more social justice. But it has been a while since the Social Democrats were serious.
