Title: The quota system of women's participation in politics
Keyword: quota system, women’s participation in politics

The quota system is a core measure to promote women's participation in politics. It refers to specific provisions on the proportion of women in politics, and is applicable worldwide. International organizations including the United Nations and many countries have adopted the quota system of regulating and maintaining a specific percentage of women in organizations and political institutions, in efforts to bring more women into the political arena and enhance women's political representation. Developed countries and political parties formulate their specific ratios. For example, the German Social Democratic Party requires a 40% gender quota of women candidates in every election.
