BANGKOK – The government has detailed the major implications of the new gender equality bill that is now in effect.
According to the Government Spokesman’s Bureau, the government aims to ensure gender equality in society and to provide assistance and compensation to those who have been affected by gender discrimination, as well as to create a society that respects individuals of both genders.
The government therefore proposed a gender equality bill which has been passed by the National Legislative Assembly.
The new law establishes a committee on gender equality to draft related polices, and a committee tasked with examining complaints regarding gender discrimination.
A gender equality fund will be established to provide financial compensation to those who have been affected by gender discrimination.
