Gender equality enables female political involvement

                                                     Deputy President Nguyen Thi Doan
 Promoting gender equality in the political field will create more opportunities for women to raise their voice in various spheres.

Vice Chairwoman of the National Assembly Tong Thi Phong made the remark at a workshop held in the Mekong Delta province of Bac Lieu on December 14.

She highlighted gender equality as a fundamental human right and an important measure of social progress.

Vietnam has worked hard to build a legal framework and implement national strategies in the field. Chapter II of the Constitution stipulates the human rights, including the gender equality of both male and female citizens.

By approving the Law on Gender Equality in 2006, the Vietnamese legislature has shown its strong commitment to promoting gender equality, the lawmaker said.

Recognising gender equality as an important contribution to the socio-economic development of each country, participants proposed a range of measures to increase the involvement of women in political issues.

By 2020, Vietnam aims for women to fill at least 25 percent of posts in party committees at all levels and 35-40 percent of seats in the National Assembly. The State and Governments agencies mean to have females occupy at least 30 percent of key leadership positions.-VNA
