Joint efforts to enhance women’s legal understanding

To this effect, a coordination programme was inked in Hanoi on January 5, aiming to ensure women’s access to legal information, while improving the quality and effectiveness of including gender equality in law making, particularly women-related laws.

VWU President Nguyen Thi Thu Ha expressed her hope that her organisation will continue receiving close collaboration of the ministry in ensuring legal assistance for women, thus enhancing their position and capability in conciliation at grassroots level and inclusion of gender equality in law making.

Minister of Justice Le Thanh Long believed that the two bodies will better implement their assigned tasks, while helping their female staff in particular and women in general well perform their roles in the society and their families.

The programme is also expected to address the prejudice against women, prevent social misbehaviors, and strictly handle violence against women and women trafficking and abusing.

Under the programme, the two sides will propose practical measures to popularise and enforce the Constitution as well as newly issued laws and ordinances.

They will develop a network of legal consultants to help disadvantaged women and organise training sessions for their female staff, while monitoring enforcement of relevant laws and policies.-VNA

Under the Socialist system, tens of thousands of women have become specialists in different fields and, as cadre, serve as directors and vice-directors of factories, leaders of farming cooperatives, presidents of People’s Committees, and general secretaries of Party Cells....

And so, the women of Vietnam from ancient times until now, from South to North, from young to old, are truly heroes ..."
