Review legislation and National targeted programs on labour from a gender equality perspective
Updated at: 19/03/2012

Almost all the countries in the world acknowledge that gender equality contributes to a better quality of life for all people. ILO member States reached the agreement that the elimination of gender-based discrimination not only benefits individuals but also the entire community by promoting economic growth, political stabilization and social justice.

The Vietnamese Government has a strong commitment to ensuring equality between men and women in all respects. The Government has ratified a series of international conventions and incorporated  the provisions  into national  legislations.  In  the Constitution of Vietnam—both  the first version of 1946  to  the  latest amended version of 1992—it  is  stated  that "male and  female citizens  have  equal  political,  economic,  social  and  family  rights  Equal  rights  for men  and women have been institutionalized into the legislative system, creating a firm foundation for the extension  of  equal  rights  for  all men  and women.  The  Labour  Code  issued  in  1995  and  the revised versions of 2002, 2006 and 2007 are widely acknowledged as progressive in the areas of gender  and women's  advancement. However, due  to  the  rapid  socioeconomic  change  that  has taken place over  the  last 25  years  a number of  the  legal  regulations  that  existed have become outdated and inapplicable for the real needs of society. This is especially the case with regards to gender equality issues.
