Achieving balanced participation of women and men in political and punlic decision-making : a gender equality and democratic requirement

Truly democratic institutions should reflect the diversity of the population and address the needs of all. Balanced participation of women and men in political and public decision-making is a key indicator of gender equality and women’s full enjoyment of their human rights, a condition for equality, social justice and cohesion. In 2003, the Councilof Europe adopted Recommendation Rec(2003)3 on balanced participation of women and men in political and public decision-making. Governments of the member states committed themselves to achieve a minimum representation of 40% of women and men in political and public life, through legislative, administrative and supportive measures, and to adopt indicators to measure progress.
