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.

The committee

The Committee to promote and safeguard Women’s rights or the Women’s Rights Committee was established by Sovereign Ordinance on 25 th October 2018. It is a response to the recommendations issued by international women’s rights organisations, and has the remit to promote gender equality and combat violence and discrimination against women. The Committee enables the Government to expand its efforts in a coordinated way, working closely with other institutions and with civil society.
