Editorial: The ever-growing gender gap

Under the CEDAW Enforcement Act (消除對婦女一切形式歧視公約施行法), which took effect on Jan. 1 this year, Taiwan is required to review its laws, regulations and practices, and to amend or reform those that do not comply with the convention within three years.

The government will need to talk with and listen more to women as it seeks to bring the nation into full compliance with CEDAW. It is more than a shame that there will be so few women in leadership positions in the government to spearhead that effort.
