By analyzing the quota policy and its implementation in Chuanlin Village, Tianjin, this paper draws the conclusion that the quota policy has gender awareness. It is in accordance with rural women's interests and has increased the proportion of female representatives in village committee. However, it fails to solve the problem that women are generally in positions that are gender-based and marginalized. Possible reasons for this include the structural weakness of the quota policy and problems in the understanding of the policy, policy implementation and supervision.
