The Outline for the Development of Chinese Women (2011-2020) issued by the State Council, or China’s cabinet, said that the central government will continue to boost women’s participation in the management of state and social affairs, stressing that the number of female leaders should be gradually increased over the next decade.
The document said that the government has set a target of enshrining the concept of gender equity into more laws over the next ten years.”
