Description

[Network Hub]
[Taipei]
 
The Committee of Women’s Right Promotion, established in 1996, aims to promote gender equality in Taiwan. Since its establishment, the committee has prompted the creation of the Office for Gender Equality in the Taipei City government and has constantly pushed for gender equality. Examples of successful cases include making awareness of sexuality equality part of policy development. Through our intervention, Taipei City has become more egalitarian, and the committee is now directly planning and supervising policy implementation in Taipei in areas such as the metro system, design in the metro and pedestrian sidewalks. Taipei City continues to be fully committed to advocating for gender equality and implementing CEDAW to striving to be a world-class city.
