Promoting Women's Political Participation: A MONITORING GUIDE

The program “Enhancing Women’s Political Participation in China,” implemented between 2011 and 2015 by the All-China Women’s Federation (ACWF) with the support of the UN Women’s Fund for Gender Equality, has three goals: (1) to improve laws and policies to create an institutional environment promoting gender equality; (2) to enhance women’s influence in government; (3) to strengthen government, women’s groups, and civil society monitoring of Chinese women’s political participation and rights.

This Monitoring Guide was developed in accordance with the third objective, with the goal of outlining international best practices and elaborating a set of criteria for how the ACWF and other actors might monitor developments in women’s political participation in China.
