Benin To Promote Gender Equality and Women's Empowerment

By May 10, 2013

Follow me on:

As part of its participation in the Equal Futures Partnership Benin has committed to changes in policy, legal, and regulatory reforms to promote two mutually reinforcing goals: expanded economic opportunity for women and increased political and civic participation by women at local, state and national levels. Multilateral stakeholders including UN Women and the World Bank and leading businesses and non-profit institutions also pledged support for the partnership.

Benin has committed to addressing laws, policies, and regulations that restrict women's participation in the economy and in public life. To advance these efforts, the Executive has proposed a national multi-sector mechanism to promote women's empowerment and gender equality. Benin is also making progress in developing a program of action to advance women's participation in the 2013 elections.
