Training for Speakers on Gender Equality Law

A training course for speakers from northern provinces and cities on the Gender Equality Law was held from 20 to 21 August, 2007, at the Center for Women and Development (20 Thuy Khue Street, Tay Ho, Ha Noi).

In her speech at the training course, Mrs. Nguyen Thi Thanh Hoa, First Vice-President of VWU, emphasized the importance of the Gender Equality Law to socio-political life and its contribution to the accomplishment of the legal system o­n gender equality and the advancement of women in Vietnam. Nevertheless, in order to insure the effectiveness of the GEL - and thus narrow the gender gap with the goal of eliminating gender inequality - it was noted that comprehensive and effective communication and dissemination of information o­n the GEL is essential.


To achieve this objective, speakers o­n the GEL at all levels need to clearly define the meaning and importance of the GEL in daily life and carefully carry outtheir responsibilities in communicating and disseminating information about the GEL to people at all strata.


At the training course, speakers were provided the basic contents of the GEL; materials for GEL communication in such areas as politics, economy, culture, education, family, etc.; and a number of skills o­n GEL communication.


The training course was an opportunity for speakers to exchange and share experiences and to propose effective methods for GEL communication to staff members, people and women at all strata.
