It seeks to transform society’s social, economic, and political structures and questions the validity of the gender roles they ascribed to women and men. It also stresses the need of women to organize themselves and participate in political processes to strengthen their legal rights.

To Achieve Gender Equality

SHFC shall endeavor to develop plans, policies, programs, measures, and mechanisms to address discrimination and inequality in economic, political, social, and cultural life of women and men. SHFC shall accord women the rights, protection, and opportunities available to every member of society.

No one, therefore, should suffer discrimination on the basis of ethnicity, gender, age, language, sexual orientation, race, color, religion, political, or other opinion, national, social, or geographical origin, disability, property, birth, or other status as established by human rights standards.
