Enact Gender Equality Act
Women's Aid Organisation (WAO)
Problem Statement / Issue:
The Gender Equality Law has not been enacted although the CEDAW Committee’s Concluding observations recommended this in 2006. It has been stalled since the PN govt came into power although work on it had started in 2019
Value(s) and Belief(s):
The gender equality guarantee in article 8 of the Constitution is not enough to enable the achievement of equality or to bring about de facto equality as required under CEDAW.
Proposal of Solution and Call to Action:
Set timeline to finalise and enact the Gender Equality Act.
