The Committee

The Committee for the Promotion and Protection of Women’s Rights was created on October 25, 2018 by Sovereign Order. Its missions are to promote equality between women and men and to fight against violence and discrimination against them. It responds to the recommendations of international bodies in the field of women’s rights. This Committee allows the Government to develop its action in a coordinated manner and in consultation with other institutions and civil society.

The government’s commitment

Women’s rights are a key issue for Monaco. Over the last few years, the Principality has acceded to international conventions under the auspices of the UN and the Council of Europe on combatting violence and discrimination against women and on promoting gender equality. This commitment also seeks to change and include society as a whole.

In creating a Women’s Rights Committee, the Prince’s Government took the decision to go further, placing women’s issues at the core of its priorities.
