Several key themes have emerged from the Conversations on Women’s Development which were launched in September 2020. Participants want women and men to be equally empowered to achieve their career goals, better sharing of caregiving responsibilities, more protection for women and gender stereotypes to be overcome. This was shared by Minister of State for Social and Family Development Sun Xueling in Parliament on Tuesday (Aug 3). She gave details of work that has already begun in some of these areas, even as the feedback goes towards creating a White Paper on action plans for the future.
