KAS contributes to gender equality and women empowerment

In spite of the law, there are still legal regulations in practice which discriminate women or lack gender equality. More guidance is needed for administrations to promote gender equality in legal documents. Legislation has to promote “general welfare” in the interests of both women and men. KAS Vietnam organized with the Ministry of Justice a seminar to draft the Circular needed for efficient implementation of the Law on Gender Equality. The circular will be promulgated this September.
