The Social Construction Committee of the Sichuan Provincial People's Congress and the Women's Federation of Sichuan Province recently began studying the status of local gender equality and related issues, aiming to formulate a local regulation on gender equality promotion.
Experts from the social construction committee and representatives of the women's federations, Chengdu University, Sichuan University and Southwestern University of Finance and Economics discussed the definition of gender, construction of government functions and supervision and evaluation mechanisms, and made suggestions on the regulation's formulation at a meeting held by the provincial women's federation on November 6, 2019.
It was requested at the meeting that women's federations at all levels in the province should attach great importance to and actively participate in the research activities. The legislation investigation teams should work to provide theoretical support and practical reference for the social construction committee in legislation.
From November 12 to 15, the provincial women's federation also joined the social construction committee on study tours in Shenzhen City (in South China's Guangdong Province) and Nanjing City (the capital city of East China's Jiangsu Province), visiting relevant bases and demonstration sites and holding seminars to absorb ideas, experiences and practices in local legislation on gender equality and family education.
The social construction committee and the provincial women's federation also jointly designed a questionnaire on the legislation promoting gender equality in Sichuan Province, which nearly 8,000 netizens have completed.
