Author: LI Xiao-guang

Today, majority of the countries agree that the level of equality between women and men in political participation is an important indicator in measuring a country's level of development of democratic politics. Although "equality between men and women" has been promoted as a mainstream ideology since the founding of the People's Republic, in practice, conservatism has been part of policies adopted to address women's political participation. Traditional gender order that denies women's political participation still affects Chinese thinking and behavior. Therefore, to adopt affirmative action policy to promote women's political participation at a certain rate, though it has raised doubts from some quarters, remains an effective approach to effect changes.
