Gender-Sensitive Parliaments


What is a gender-sensitive parliament?


A gender-sensitive parliament demonstrates a commitment to addressing the needs and concerns of all genders by integrating considerations of gender equality across its structures, operations, methods, and activities. It strives to remove barriers that hinder women's full participation in parliamentary processes, thereby setting a positive example for society as a whole.
