“Gender Equality is a concept that develops and refers to two basic international instruments, in this case, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women,” said Putu Diah Sanjiwani in her presentation.

The Universal Declaration of Human Rights states that all human beings are born free and equal. Referring to the declaration, the convention on the elimination of all kinds of discrimination against women includes the terms “equal rights of men and women” and “equal rights of men and women”. The concept of gender equality refers to the full equality of men and women to obtain political, economic, civil, social, and cultural rights. This concept eliminates discrimination against certain genders in obtaining their rights or the deprivation of rights based on the gender of an individual.
