    On November 25, the Committee on Labour, Administration and Public Service of Deputies presented a draft opinion in favour of a bill for the establishment of a 30% gender quota in civil representation entities. The initiative, by deputy Soraya Santos (Liberal Party – allied to the ruling party), reaches out not only the civil society organizations, but also trade unions and professional associations. The foundations of the bill state that “although the Federal Constitution guarantees equal treatment and conditions between men and women, it is still necessary to have the participation of women at the top of these entities”. The committee is expected to vote on the draft opinion in the coming weeks.
