After 9 years implementing the Law on Gender Equality, gender equality in Quang Nam has been much improved, and women’s role and position has been promoted noticeably.

However, gender equality and women work in Quang Nam still has faced various issues, particularly gender prejudice narrowing women’s opportunity for education, contribution and promotion; and inadequately low rates of women in leadership at all levels in both the State and private sectors.

Over 200 female officers took the opportunity to talk and discuss with the province’s leaders, expressing their hopes and proposing initiatives and recommendations concerning the implementation of policies on socio-economic development in general and on women work in particular.

It is also a chance for the provincial leaders to listen to their opinions and recommendations and seek measures to improve gender equality and women work.
